|Our continuing love of Gilded Age whimsy was the inspiration for this card based on the beloved Christmas poem. "T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse" Your giftee is sure to delight in our family of mice all snug in their makeshift beds. You can almost envision the dreams of "sugar-plums dancing in all their heads" as they like so, many await the splendors of a generous Saint Nick. The detail in this card is magnificent, the extensively tooled capital T is brimming with 23k gold and exceptional hand tooling. The card is heavily embellished with jewel tone Swarovski crystals, adding just that extra bit of folly to this beautiful card.
Each limited edition card is signed and numbered by the artist, prepared as ordered either with your custom sentiment or blank leaves to be penned by the hand of the giftor. The card is presented tassel bound, within our lavish silk presentation box. Complimentary white gloves are provided for proper handling of the fine gilt work.
The presentation box is handmade of couture quality silk. Each finished with fine gold embroidery throughout.
Certificate of Authenticity: A finely engraved and hand signed document, containing edition number, history of illumination, artists biography and information exclusive to your card.
Your Gilded Age Greeting as an heirloom: Reminiscent of the renaissance treasure books that have inspired our collection, we encourage our giftees and giftors to tell the story of the greeting they have given or received. The additional leaves provided should be used to pen sentiments through the generations, each telling with great detail, how they came to receive a Gilded Age Greeting, the most beautiful cards in the world.
