Vibrant silk scarf commemorating the Birmingham Gun Barrel Proof House established in Birmingham by Parliament in 1813. Gun making was a highly skilled occupation, and Birmingham along with London became England’s principal production sites for these artisans. The proof house was established to ensure high standards were maintained.
Delightful colourway, turquoise blue background with colourful (red, black and white) military displays. There are also white tasseled ropes. The banner of the proof house runs around the border. Care label still attached.
In very good vintage condition,
