Most popular in the late 1800's this bright Pink Silk Fringed Card has two sides and was meant  to be hand delivered or sent in an envelope unlike other mailed "postcards" of those days.  Many of these silk fringed cards came in their own unique gift mailing box.  One side of the card reads: "Christmas I wish thee with plenty of cheer! And thine will, I trust, be a Happy New Year".   The reverse side reads: "I trust that a year of property may, Alight on thy path and illumine thy way!"
