On the reverse is a label confirming the weavers to be " SPURCROFT ":
Care though should be taken with this picture. The original was woven by CARTWRIGHT & SHELDON, and this version is mounted in a stiff card mount with a scalloped edge.
SPURCROFT re-woven this picture, including the Horsley signature and date, using the original jacquard loom cards, and there is no discernible difference. The Spurcroft version though is mounted in a heavy grade card mount, being 3mm thick, with straight edges.
