Comments:

It is not known how this silk was intended to be used. It is large enough to be mounted either as a picture or as a card, although with the woven trade name, it was more likely to have been intended for some kind of sales promotion.

The trade name ORIENT relates to BN&H's own Artificial Silk Hosiery brand.

Below are two variations of this silk, and it is not known why there is a variation, nor in which order they were made:
The first has the same woven " ORIENT " title, but not the " TRADE MARK ", and the " BROUGH NICHOLSON & HALL " name below the camel does not have the 1930 date;
silk picture, with title of Orient - being a trade mark name - with image of egyptian pyramids, and a camel with a lady riding on its back
 
The second does not have the woven title and has the same weavers name without the 1930 date. The lady's face is improved and there is only one pyramid in the background, and there are other minor changes (camel's seat, lady's shoe and dress etc.):
