The Jubilee silk is the only one woven with more than six colours in it. Variations exist in the single silk picture, with the background known to have been woven in gold or pale blue. The originally double mounted editions [above] feature the gold version only.
At this time, whilst some of the earlier pictures were still available from BWA, others were already out of stock. The Silver Jubilee could be purchased for £5.50 and the double mounted issue of the Coronation and Silver Jubilee was available for £32.50.
The double mounted issue was available only on request, and was supplied 'to order'. Estimates vary regarding the actual number sold - some say between twelve and twenty. Whatever the truth may be, they are very rare.
