Comments:
This ribbon is a pair with cash-other0013 - Crimean War - Leaving

The Bookmark Society record this ribbon as being a bookmark (reference number 514), thereby attributing it to J & J CASH'S manufacture.

The design though is a continuously repeated pattern, of which the image above is of one cycle. There is no break in the design to allow a bookmark to be formed with upper or lower fold-overs. As such, there is also no weavers name anywhere on the actual ribbon.

I have seen this same ribbon on another web site, in that case though attributed to the manufacture of HART. It is hence not conclusively known who made this ribbon, and it is possible it is not of CASH'S manufacture.
