Comments:

Woven on the front, at the bottom, is the customer initials " B, N, &, H " in a square formation.
Also woven at the bottom is the eagle logo of the Eagle company of Detroit, Mitchigan, USA.

Whilst Brough Nicholson & Hall wove this bookmark, it was actually made for the American market,
where it is known and marketed as an " Eaglegraph ".

This is the first such Eaglegraph to be made.

This bookmark is made of man made fibres, not pure silk.
