Description
The British Museum
From the collection of the British Museum, this card reproduces a Japanese Rinpa School painting depicting egrets; a luminous detail from a six-panel folding screen by an unknown 18th-century artist. This card shows a trio of egrets in the snow with a shining gold background. Egrets are small white herons known for the attractive white plumes on their crest back and chest. Traditionally a symbol of good fortune, purity and longevity, egrets are also associated with winter as this is when they make the long trip to the British coast. Bring elegance to your friend's and family's mantlepiece with these White Egrets on Willow Christmas Cards.

Personally I use these cards for all occasions. My most important reason for buying them is the painting but foremost that they are left blank. That makes them "unique". I can write wishes for all occasions including Christmas. Please leave them blank. Printed Christmas greetings are boring and many already exist. Being able to write a personal message for any and all occasions is the value of this card. Do not add a mesage; leave that to the customer's choice. People can write Christmas greetings if they wish. If you start printing them with Christmas or any other greeting, I shall definitely stop buying them. Leave them as is. They are perfect and unique. Thank you.

Very different! I like to send cards that are not typically Christmas in feeling to some of my friends. I especially like Chinese designs.

The Japanese painting of White Egrets on Willow is absolutely beautiful in its simplicity and understatement.
