A printed silk cover

This is a pattern known from G.P. & J. Baker’s record sample P.212, hand-block printed on a linen/jute mixture fabric circa 1902-1905. However, the pattern dates from earlier, a small piece of paper proof identifying it as block B67 and its accompanying borders as B95, named “Haddon”. The border blocks were cut in July 1895 so providing an earliest possible date for use of the pattern as a table cover. The designer’s name is not recorded; one possibility would be Sidney Mawson. It was produced for Baker's client No.10, which may have been Liberty.
Origin: England
Size: 9’6½” (291cm) x 5’8½” (174 cm)
Date: circa 1895-1910
