Spread cheer this festive period with the Soane Museum 2019 Christmas Cards, featuring a timeless design by Robert Adam set into an off-white background, colour-matched according to the original antique paper from our archive.
Held in the collection at the Sir John Soane's Museum, this design was originally executed in Elizabeth Montagu's dressing room at 23 Hill Street, London. Adam was commissioned to redecorate Elizabeth Montagu's dressing room on the first floor of the house - known as the Silver room - and in reality a large room for entertaining. The result was a beautiful classical scheme with painted Chinoiserie motifs and medallions, characteristic of contemporary interior design taste. Adam’s interior at 23 Hill Street was altered in the nineteenth century, but survives in situ in this altered state.
Includes five cards with envelopes. Message inside reads: 'Season's Greetings'.
