So pleased that a couple of Mossfield blankets have turned up. I believe Porritts and Spencer are / were a Hamilton Ontario mill, I wonder if there will be any interest in them at the Christie antique show ( now run by the Hamilton Conservation Authority) when I attend in September?
Perhaps a knowledgeable Hamiltonian will drop by. Booth M5 hint hint.
Another Kenwood... with a very proud ram.This the first I have seen with ' Queensize' displayed.
Finally, a most interesting label. A handsome wool blanket woven with a sort of chrysanthemum border....label in English and Chinese. I have just been perusing Cecil Beatons diary as a wartime correspondent in China, published in 1945.
Does this blanket date from that time? When British troops were in China? or perhaps it is a missionary blanket.
Its a mystery, rather like this one
