Tartan Details - Princess Beatrice Dress (1880)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Princess Beatrice Dress (1880)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1206
STWR ref: 1206
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1880
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Fashion
Registration notes: Princess Beatrice (1857 - 1944) was the youngest daughter of Queen Victoria who married Prince Henry of Battenburg in 1885. It was originally thought that this tartan was possibly designed for that wedding or as a commemorative tartan for that occasion although it was not until circa 1930 that the sett first appeared in the lists of Ross and Johnston. However, research in 2003 showed that a woven sample of this tartan, just known as 'Beatrice Dress' was included in Clans Originaux published in Paris in 1880. The original hypothesis was therefore incorrect and the tartan had been in existance for at least 5 years before the wedding.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
