Publishers to the King & Queen
This pale blue envelope and the card contained within it are a striking example of a small piece of British greetings card history. With a design evocative of the period, the card and envelope were produced by a company called Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd, which established in London in 1866.
If you'd like to know more about Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd you'll find a comprehensive history and further examples of their cards on the Tuck DB website HERE. Examples of Tuck's cards are relatively easy to find popping up on Ebay and flea markets costing pennies to several pounds.
|The envelope interior is lined with a high quality, embossed paper which remains in excellent condition.|
