Brooks Sewing Cottons Poster
This is a large advertising poster printed by Le Blond for Brook's Sewing Cottons. It includes a magnificent picture of Meltham Mills near Huddersfield to the top third with the title below, then the title and reel details. The medals cover London 1851 and 1862, and Paris 1855, 1867, and 1878. At the bottom Medal and Award Philadelphia 1876. It is framed in a maple moulding with a gilt slip. Le Blond had turned to product labelling post 1870, but by 1894 had gone into receivership. So this must have been printed in the years 1870 to 1894. In the Lycett Martin reference book there is mention of trade labels but none for Brook's. This advertising poster has Le Blond's name to the base (see the pictures) and will appeal to Le Blond as well as sewing collectors. It is of considerable historical interest and an extremely rare item indeed. There is some staining to the top right and a repaired tear, now reinforced. The carriage will have to be discussed but is currently set at "Framed Picture".
