Size:
Of favour: 7.4cm long by 3.2cm wide
Comments:
As can be seen there is woven on the reverse the name " FATTORINI ", although this is unlikely to be the actual maker of this favour.

There still exists a company called Thomas Fattorini who can trace their history back to 1827. They were based in Skipton, Yorkshire, now in Manchester, Birmingham and London, and they are makers of name and pin badges (among other crafted items). It is hence possible this is the same company whose name appears on the reverse of this favour.

As shown however, there is no woven makers name on the favour, although the President of the Stevengraph Collectors Association reports that this favour has been identified as of GRANT manufacture at the Coventry Herbert Museum, and is hence attributed to GRANT.
