|Below are images of a number of woven pictures and bookmarks; some of which appear to be from the Victorian period, and others from more recent times.
We do not know who made these items, and would really like to know.
Do you know who made them?If you can help, please send me an e-mail with the details to:

Below are views of the front and reverse of the Gretna Green bookmark. Do you know who made it?
The Bookmark Society created an extensive catalogue of CASH'S woven bookmarks, and this title is not recorded in that catalogue. It hence might not be of CASH'S manufacture.
There is however a great deal of similarity to bookmarks made by Berisford.
Do you have any more information which might help identify who wove this bookmark?

This enquiry was of a silk bookmark of Benjamin Disraeli, made by the L & S weavers.
This record has now been moved to a dedicated L & S page, within the Other Weavers section.
|unknown3|| Rachel Andrews sent me this image. It was clearly a royal favour, as the original pin position can be clearly seen.|
Unfortunately there is no name woven on the turn over.
Stevens is known to have produced these type of royal favours [such as sb564 and sb566], again with no name (identified as they have registration numbers).
Grant too though also produced royal favours [with five titles starting with Coronation, but with no images yet].
Do you have any more information which might help identify who did weave this favour?

This enquiry related to a Souvenir bookmark from the Exposition Universelle D'Anvers 1894.
A member of the Stevengraph Collectors Association notes the similarity of this bookmark to a picture also woven at the Exposition, and attributes both picture and bookmark to GRANT.
This bookmark can now be found as Souvenir Exposition Universelle D'Anvers 1894.
