Whilst this silk bears the credit Odell & French, Manfr., Welch & Lenton, Drafts, Godden records that the official registration was awarded to Welch & Lenton.
The image above is of a loose silk, and I have never seen this silk mounted in an offical card frame.

Reverend Sidney Henry Widdrington was born on 16 December 1803, and died on 23 July 1870. He was vicar of St. Michaels from 1858 to 1863.
