Comments:
This undated Christmas card comprises a folded card, with a woven silk view of WARWICK CASTLE 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 pink silk ribbon. Printed on the insert is a short motto on the left hand leaf, and space on the right hand leaf for the name of the sender, together with pre-printed greeting.

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