Print: Baxter CL 147 Signed on the extreme right, on the stone of the balcony, "Baxter's Patent Oil Colour Printing, 11, Northampton Square,"

It is often stated as being Queen Victoria but this not true as it is an enlargement and development of a slightly smaller print by Baxter with the same title (hence why this usually called the large bride) and that was taken from a picture by Fanny Corbaux.


Used extensively on the covers of sheets of music for Jullien's "Prima Donna Valse" When there is printed in gold letters under the print "Printed in Oil Colours by G. Baxter, the Inventor & Patentee." It was produced from a plate and twelve blocks and was originally sold at 1s.
