Several silks were incorporated in the covers or mounts of calendars (the calendar part being printed on paper in the normal manner) and these cannot be classed as woven calendars. Nevertheless, the finest post-war Grant silk pictures have been especially woven to enhance these standard calendars.
STATUE OF LADY GODIVA
Apart from size, the only difference is in the large white cloud at the top of the silk. In the 1933 calendar, there is within this cloud a smaller swirl of grey cloud. In the 1958 version, this is replaced with a more flattened cloud, coloured peach.
On the calendar above, the central flap containing the silk, lifts up to reveal the 1933 calendar, together with an amusing motto.
