Signed on the front:
H. SLINGSBY
MANUFACTURER
NUNEATON.

Slingsby tended to stamp their name on the back of his silks, using ink. This was in the form of a large oval, with the Diamond Registration mark inside.

There is just such a stamping on the reverse of this sash, although it is rather indistinct.
Normally, around the outside of the oval would be written:

" H. SLINGSBY MANUFACTURER NUNEATON "
 
 
stamped credit on reverse top turnover of this bookmark
 
 
 
 
The Diamond Registration mark contained within this oval
has the date of registration on 23 October 1872.
