Comments:
by Sprake:
Whilst Sprake records the MATER DOLOROSA title, there is no evidence he recorded the version above.

by Godden:
Again whilst Godden records the MATER DOLOROSA title, there is no evidence he recorded the version above.

Other comments:
The version above is rare, and so far has only been seen in the German card frame, as shown above.
The more common version, with the woven heart above the portrait, is recorded as so386, with the similar version without the woven heart being recorded as so388.

Whilst there is no credit to STEVENS manufacture, the silk above has the same overall design as ECCE HOMO (so228), of which this silk makes a pair.

In a very early edition of the Stevengraph Collectors Association newsletter, there was reproduced a black & white copy of the silk above. In that copy however, Mary is seen looking to the left - a mirror version to the portrait above.
In addition, below is an image of the same un-mounted silk:
