by Geoffrey Godden:
The portraits of Gladstone are of two main types with slight variations - mainly in the colouring of the flowers below the silk (which are completely missing on some early examples) - and may be found in two sizes.
The standard version (§1036) is shown on go200.
The earlier black-and-white version (§1036a) is of small size, some 3¼ inches high, and the printed title on the card-mount reads 'Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone, Esq., M.P.' [that is, the image above].
The Stevens firm also produced portrait silks depicting Gladstone.
