- Text from catalogue of the Hull Grundy Gift (Gere et al 1984) no 354:
Made to celebrate the coronation of King Edward and Queen Alexandra in 1902.
The images were probably taken from photographs dating from the 1890s. The King and Queen are wearing the same costumes and, in the case of Queen Alexandra, the same jewellery, for a sitting with Gunn & Stuart in 1896, when they were Prince and Princess of Wales (see National Portrait Gallery, NPG x3801). Princess Alexandra wears her wedding tiara, part of the suite of diamond and pearl jewellery given by the Prince of Wales, with the interlaced in-betweens removed. (Charlotte Gere)
