This Christmas card by Diana Huntingford was sent from the Huntingford family to their friends Sir John and Lady Ritblat in 2007 and was subsequently donated to the Museum by Lady Ritblat. The traditional home-made appeal of the card - a star/flower/snowflake design stencilled in gold on handmade paper - brings a more personal touch to the festivities.
