signed: " I & R ROBINSON & CO. " woven on the front. The address is given as 30 Milk Street, although in the absence of a town, it is not known where Robinson was based.

The actual silk panel has been mounted in a new, recent card matt, and it is not known how it was originally presented.

As Prince Albert was instrumental in the origination and organisation of the Great Exhibition, it is assumed the large capital A relates to his Royal Highness.
