Give A Fig™ cards now at Winterthur Museum

Give A Fig™ art cards are now available at Winterthur Museum bookstore! Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library is a world-reknowned institution nestled on 1,000 acres of rolling piedmont in northern Delaware. The estate museum houses one of the most important collections of American decorative arts including rare furnishings, antiques, and books in the United States of America.

Tour the house to see exquisite spaces in which founder Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969) entertained family and friends in grand style. The 175 rooms, many of them with historical architecture, are furnished with his outstanding collection of antiques and selections from nearly 90,000 objects masterfully arranged.

Outdoor at Winterthur, enjoy rolling hills, streams, meadows, and forests. H. F. du Pont selected only the choicest plants from around the world to enhance the natural setting, arranging them in lyrical color combinations and carefully orchestrating a succession of bloom from late January to November. Du Pont translated his love of the land into a unified work of art that embodies a romantic vision of nature’s beauty.

At Give A Fig™, our love of beautiful natural spaces and historic cultures translates into unique designs that celebrate nature and the arts. Every card is produced on the best available premium paper that is environmentally responsible with an FSC-certified recycled paper, soy-based inks, and low-emission, alternative energy sources.

We think our Give A Fig™ art cards are a perfect fit with Winterthur’s dedication to the highest ideals of beauty, history, and nature. We’re excited for you to visit Winterthur and check out our cards for sale in the bookstore.
