  • A signed photographic postcard of Queen Victoria.

Few British rulers have cast as long a shadow as Queen Victoria. Her reign lasted 63 years, which stood as the record up until great-granddaughter Elizabeth II surpassed her in 2015.

Britain was at the very height of its wealth and power during the Victorian era. Its colonies covered almost a third of the world’s land mass, making up the largest empire in history.

Queen Victoria married her beloved husband Albert in 1840. His sudden death in 1861 at the age of 42 was a blow from which she never recovered. She remained in mourning black for the rest of her days.

A signed photographic postcard of Queen Victoria, signed by the monarch and dated 1880 in black ink.


Postcard measures 6 1/2" by 4 1/4" (16.6 cm by 10.8cm).

The portrait, which features the Queen sat reading a book, is the work of photographer Arthur James Melhuish.

Victoria has signed in black ink.

Handwritten date is smudged, some foxing to the card, otherwise in fine condition.


Provenance: ex Stanley Gibbons.
