Both images above were kindly donated by Jenni Redman, and she has undertaken some very interesting research:

She has noticed that all BOLLANS bookmarks have either a white or a black background colour.
Whilst the WELCH & LENTON bookmarks are also made with black or white background, if the background is of any other colour, all such bookmarks were made by WELCH & LENTON.
The bookmarks above are made with blue and black background, and as can be seen, are recorded as of WELCH & LENTON manufacture.
