Other comments:
Signed below the title:-
"MESSRS. DALTON & BARTON MANFRS" (being weaver and designer respectively.)

Between the title and the credits, is also woven:-
"R. BARTON" on the left hand side, and "COVENTRY 1861" on the right:-

This is a silk portrait of Her Royal Highness Princess Alice, the second daughter of Victoria and Prince Albert. Born on 25 April 1843, she died on 14 December 1878, having married Prince Louis of Hesse in July 1862.
It is probable from the date woven on the right side of the portrait that this silk was for her wedding.

This is the second silk with this same title, the one above being the rare version, and the version oda12 on this site being the more common version.
