Folding card with lovers in medieval dress, ca. 1880's
Marcus Ward & Co.

The decorative borders and relatively flat color of this card qualify it as architectural rather than pictorial. It's design, including the medieval and classical references, also mark it as representative of the aesthetic and arts and crafts movements.

Front, closed:	A HAPPY CHRISTMAS
Inside: Will their dreams come true, I wonder? only this is sure to me,
	That their love could not be truer than my friendship is to thee.
