That silk box is incredibly evocative, especially with the photo.
Thanks for saying so. It’s one of several embroidered silk postcards (although it would also make a lovely insert for a box lid) which belonged to my grandmother. They are truly very poignant reminders of the Great War. They definitely fired my imagination.
