WELSH BLANKETS ARE OUR SPECIALITY.... HOWEVER........?
posted 2014-04-01 12:19:45
We have been buying and selling Welsh Blankets for a number of years and we are still mystified with several unanswered questions. As there is limited information about these beautiful items it seems that these blankets have become woven into folklore.
Questions.. Who designed these amazing patterns?
Why are today's Welsh Blankets made without border patterns?
Why did the border patterns go out of fashion in the 1960's?
Why are the North Wales patterns so vastly different from the South and Mid Wales ?
Why were swaddling blankets only made in Mid Wales? Why not other regions?
Why have no definitive books been written on Welsh Blankets which attribute their provenance to the Principality?
These are just a few of the questions. There are many more.
Please e mail us with your suggestions and answers. Thank you. Mike King.

PERRY HIGGINS DOES NOT EXIST !!!
POSTED BY THE SOLE PROPRIETOR MICK KING
Many times during the course of business hours customers are frequently asking to speak to "Perry" and are politely told that "Perry" does not exist.
The business trading name "Perry Higgins Antiques" evolved from the combination of two mothers' maiden names. My mother's maiden name was Higgins.
My ex partner left this business some 6 years ago and her mother's maiden name was Perry.
Hence the lovely business trading name "Perry Higgins Antiques"
Please do not ask for Perry when you come to my shop!
