Comments:
This 1903 Christmas card comprises a folded card, with a woven silk image of SHAKESPEARE'S BIRTHPLACE on the front. The rear cover is plain.
A paper insert is held inside the card by a silk ribbon. Printed on the insert is a short motto on the left hand leaf, and space on the right hand leaf for the names of the sender and recipient, together with pre-printed dates.

It is evident this card was intended to be sold to the general public, rather than being a Grant Family card
