Victoria (Royal)
  • Notes: Similar to the Dress Stewart but with a red line running through the white ground. It is known to have been in production as early as 1838 (NOMINDEX). Scottish Tartans Society notes say Royal Family but it was certainly used as a fashion tartan in 1906 where it was the lining for an Inverness cape from John Wight & C. of 105 Princes St., Edinburgh. Another note - possibly from Harry Lindley of Kinloch Anderson states: "It is said she (Queen Victoria) admired the Dress Stewart tartan so much, but requested a variation, so the Red Line was introduced - date mid 1800s." 11th March 2015. Burberry Catalogue produced during WWI by John Ross lists the Queen Victoria as a Royal Tartan.
