Brief Description
New Years card, printed on one side with a colour image of a cricket match and on both sides with a cricket-related verse. The image is an idealised portrayal of cricket, showing a side-on view of a batsman wearing red cap, neckerchief and belt, holding his bat in an unusual stance, with a fielder in striped outfit standing at square leg. In the background, a group of spectators sit under a large tree, and further in the distance is a church tower. The edges of the card are gilded and each corner is rounded. Writing on reverse reads "5".
