I have just got my glasses on and have found in the back of Jenny Thompsons book an entry for the 14th Feb 1865, which reads I think
Date of deposit No Of Parcel No of design Name of Proprietor

But nothing for metal, unless the mould was metal and he forgot to change the number?
Hi Barbara, It's quite hard to read isn't it, but the number is 183593
, by Alfred Edmu
nd Edwards, and under the date in tiny letters it says Classes I & IV
The British Library help page on registered designs
Class 1 Metal
Class 4 Glass, earthenware, porcelain
I haven't find anything about A E Edwards though - wonder who he was?
Wikipedia says Prince Albert died in 1861, so a bit too early for this crown I'd have thought.
