Provenance is one of the most important qualities for royal commemoratives,and a good royal provenance can increase an items value ten fold,as was proved in the recent sale of Princess Margaret's possessions at Christie's. Provenance is proof,proof of who it was given to is a major factor, and because this card was given to a member of the British aristocracy, this greatly enhances its provenance and value.

This card comes from what we consider to be the most important collection that we have ever acquired.Christmas cards that have been hand signed and dedicated by Queen Elizabeth,The late Queen Mother are rare,even rarer still though,is this card, sent to a member of a famous aristocratic family,who were personal friends of the Queen Mother.This combination makes this one of the rarest cards ever to be offered for sale.The full fascinating story of these cards will only be given to the buyer.

The card was sent in 1977. The picture on the card is an actual photograph and shows The Queen Mother riding in the Silver Jubilee Procession with Prince Andrew and Prince Harry.
