[TRANSFORMATION PRINT]. Prince Albert’s Stock; or, The Royal fashion for 1843, which is to continue for the succeeding ten years. London: William Spooner, 1843.

Single-sided sheet (22 x 32.5cm), printed with text in black; full-colour lithograph showing portrait of the three Royal children, Victoria
the Princess Royal, Edward, and the recently born Alice underneath tipped-on two folding flaps comprising Prince Albert’s neckcloth; a lovely example of a delicate item, som creasing and overall light marks, a couple of small closed tears to the flaps.
The print puns on a double meaning of the word 'stock'; Prince Albert's stock, or neck-tie, can be unfolded to reveal his more intimate stock - the royal children, sitting hand-in-hand.
An unusual item, recorded only at the John Johnson Collection, Oxford, the V&A, and the Simon Fraser University Library in Canada.
