On this royal portrait silk, which was registered at the Patent Office on 30 March 1901, the registration number 372130 is usually woven near the right-hand side of the picture, but the early runs - issued in February and March 1901 - lack this detail and may have a stamp on the back of the card-mount reading 'Registration applied for'.
Along with its pair, KING EDWARD VII [so232 on this site], this silk was first listed on label 31 +39a. Her Majesty had earlier been featured as the Princess of Wales [see so544 and so550 on this site.].
The subject is also found in postcard form; and as with other popular subjects, the Queen was also featured in W. H. Grant's silk pictures.
