Other comments:
Rather than weaving in their name, Slingsby tended to stamp it on the back of his silks, using ink. This was in the form of a large circle, with the Diamond Registration mark inside.

This ribbon does not have the circle; having only the stamped Diamond Registration mark, with the date of registration on 5 May 1868.
There is obvious concern about the absence of Slingsby's name, although as no other weaver stamped their silks, there must be a high degree on comfort that this silk is indeed by Slingsby.

A.O.F. = Ancient Order of Foresters

P.C.R. = Past Chief Ranger
