This perfect example of this great label was kindly sent via email:
The damaged label below was originally posted 20th May 2012:
A partial label for John Kesson of 28 Diamond Street, Aberdeen, Scotland. I hope to find a complete example as it is a really nice design with various frames and artist's palette. The frame on the left has the name and address, and the frame on the right says 'Carver' and 'Gilder'. He traded from this address from 1881 to 1915 or later.
More information on this framemaker can be found on the National Portrait Gallery website - Directory of British Picture Framemakers

Alfred Lovell Price (1847-1928) started his business around 1885, the census of 1861 showed his occupation as a carver and gilder, aged just 13 years old.
A.L. Price worked at Gillows and Co. of Lancaster before starting his framing business. Gillows and Co. had a very long history making fine furniture from the early 18th Century, the company carried out the carving of Pugin's designs for the Palace of Westminster in 1840 and worked on commissions for the interiors of public buildings throughout the world.
