Mohair Damask

Mohair Damask was designed by William Morris and registered 18 November 1876. Power loom jacquard woven mohair and wool by Dixon of Bradford, Yorkshire. A popular design it continued to be produced into twentieth century. This design in a cotton version was called Crown Imperial.

I had some curtain lengths sold a while ago, which had the label Morris & Company Ltd, Upholsterrs. Church furnishers & Tapestry Restorers, 17 George St, Hanover Square, London W1. By Appointment. A similar label in Parry's book* shows this to date from c 1918.  The shop in this location opened in 1917 and continued until the firm's liquidation in May 1940. A few smaller pieces have now become available.

I only have two pieces left which have slight fading stripes. You might not mind this. There is also a photo of the reverse which is in very good condition, and you may like to use this for the main side.



Woven mohair and wool in red.

Two long narrow strips 4ft 6 in x 14 in; 1.35 x 26 cm. Ask for photos and details.



This has been professionally cleaned.
