The queen's silver jubilee was marked by a formal address at the Olympic Stadium and celebrations that included exhibitions, parties, and the production of numerous commemorative items. Produced as a limited edition, this tapestry's pattern of geometric shapes represents a shining crown atop a triangle bearing the initial "W" and the date September 6, 1923. This was one the few modernist designs ever produced by Kinheim, a German manufacturer in Beverwijk known for its traditional, hand-made tapestries.
