CALENDARS
Various woven calendars were made in different years - many mounted on postcards from the early 1900s onwards, others with Christmas or New Year greetings printed on the reverse side.

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.

ALIGHTING MALLARD DUCK
A fine silk made as a calendar mount in 1959. Designed by T. D. Howes.
