WOVEN IN SILK BY
B.N.H. LEEK, ENGLAND.

As shown above, two versions of this silk are known, one with blue silk for the portrait and crown, and the other with black silk.

These silks are really too small to be considered as bookmarks, and many of them had pins attached to the back, and were worn as favours.
