Tiffany designed card features a gold embossed wreath with crossed flags, and an image of the Statue on its pedestal, with the shields of both the United States and France. Visible portion measures 7.25'' x 5'', matted and framed to 11'' x 8.75''. Not examined out of frame, appears in very good to near fine condition.
