'Cone-gratulations' Card

£3.00 - £21.00 From £3.00 £3.00

The best way to say congratulations

Outside the Glasgow, Gallery of Modern Art stands a statue of the Duke of Wellington
mounted on his trusty horse. The statue is by Italian artist Carlo Marochetti and was
erected in 1844.

At some point in the 1980’s a tradition began of Glaswegian’s challenging each other to place a cone upon his head.

Therefore, despite the Council’s best efforts, he is nearly always seen with his unusual adornment.

There is short summary of the cone story on the rear of the card

This is a thick 16pt, FSC credited paper stock. With a light satin coating on the outside, the inside is left uncoated, making it easier for you to write your own message. Each card is individually scored, ensuring a clean fold and comes with a simple 100% recycled brown envelope.

Also available as an unframed and unmounted digital archival art print on Somerset Velvet 225gsm paper. This is an extremely high quality art print produced in Glasgow. As standard the print will come without the text 'Cone-gratulations' but just drop us an email if you would like if on your print too.
