Comments:
This 1904 Christmas card has the border normally associated with the Grant "Large Card with Green Border", although the card itself is of the normal postcard size, and the border is actually printed on blue.
The card has the insert silk of Ann Hathaway's Cottage, but with a pre-printed back with space for the name and address of the recipient, and the sender.

As such, this would appear to be a card made for sale to the general public, unlike Grant family Christmas cards which were made exclusively for Alderman & Mrs Grant, as their name's were preprinted as the senders.
