‘Haddon’. An English printed silk cover, circa 1895-1910. 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; the pattern, however, dates from earlier, the border blocks having been cut in July 1895. A small piece of paper proof identifying the main pattern as coming from block B67 and the borders from B95 name the design as “Haddon”. The designer’s name is not recorded, although Sidney Mawson has been suggested. It was produced for Baker's client No.10, which may have been Liberty. 9’6½” (291cm) x 5’8½” (174cm).
