Welch & Lenton Trademark as printed on the card on which the bookmarks were mounted for posting
to Bollans
    Welch & Lenton, 1 Bailey Lane, Coventry
    (Note some early Stevens bookmarks bear the woven credit T. Stevens, Manuftr. Coventry. Welch & Lenton, Drafts)

(Also note that many of the bookmarks are identical to E. Bollans, and have been cross referenced accordingly.)

Several bookmarks have been seen that are identical to either Welch & Lenton or Bollans recorded bookmarks but which have no manufacturers name woven on the reverse. This would imply these weavers also made bookmarks for other sellers on a commission basis. Occationally in this catalogue there are titles recorded where the actually bookmark does not have a weavers name, although the silk is undoubtedly of Welch & Lenton or Bollans manufacture.
