Cartwright Memorial Hall BRADFORD EXPOSITION Silk
1904, Cartwright Memorial Hall “BRADFORD EXPOSITION” Commemorative Silk Ribbon Textile, England, 4.5” x 2.5”, Very Fine.
The Cartwright Memorial Hall was a splendid memorial erected at Bradford, England, in honor of the inventor of the Power Loom, at the instance of Lord Masham and almost entirely at his cost, ... Mr. Lyons, the well- known violinist, weaver and spinner, was here recently calling on friends and is on his way to the St. Louis Exposition. This Silk appears to be made for that purpose. It reads: “Cartwright / Memorial / INAUGURAL EXHIBITION BRADFORD 1904,” measuring 4.5” x 2.5”. Featuring a black and gray Loom machine-embroidered image of the Bradford building in England with its clock tower on the grounds of the exhibition from the St. Louis World’s Fair. Central figure is a handsome, blue/red/white/black threaded coat of arms, inscribed “LABOR OMNIA VINCIT.” Mounting remnants on verso and along left margin and upper right corner. Ribbon appears to have been cut from a larger ribbon or sash. A colorful example.
