Other comments:
Neither Sprake nor Godden record this combination of colours.

This combinations of colours has been seen with the following back label, which clearly shows the owners name as Mr PECK.
Mr Peck's colours however are recorded {see so41} as being " Blue body and Cap, with Orange sleeves ".
If the silk above really is that of Mr. Peck, then these original colours have faded very badly; and it is known that blue does fade very easily.
