Comments:
There is no weavers mark on the reverse of this bookmark, either at the top turn over, nor the bottom pointed turnover.

The image of Queen Victoria however is identical to that which appears on the picture [oli8 on this site] which is clearly identified as having been made by "LESTER & HARRIS".

It is believed that the silk above was also made by this weaver.
