Comments:
This undated Christmas card comprises a folded card, with a woven silk view of STONEHENGE on the front. The rear cover is plain. The embossing around the silk however is not typical of GRANT, although it does appear on a number of other GRANT cards, one of which (gc863-fcc: With the Seasons Compliments) has the GRANT name printed on the card.
A paper insert is held inside the card by a silk ribbon. Printed on the insert on the right hand leaf is a greeting, together with space for the name of the sender. Ordinarily on the left hand would be a printed motto, but the image of that side is missing.

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