It bears no artist name, but has the Guinness number GE 685 A.
Info: In 1892, Henry Dacre wrote a song 'Daisy Bell' that became hugely popular, in the London music halls and across the pond in the US. The lyrics featured a tandem - a bicycle made for two - and the Daisy he described was said to be the Countess of Warwick, Frances Evelyn 'Daisy' Greville, who was a champion of women's rights, and a mistress of the Prince of Wales.
