History

The maker is unknown but it was made in the north of England in the Durham area and was owned by the present owner's mother. It was brought to Perth Western Australia in 1992. It is not used now. "This quilt, unfortunately, was not appreciated. During the time a prize bull was sick, it was removed from my brother's bed to keep it [the bull] warm until the vet arrived. At that stage, early 1951, it was in perfect condition. This was at 'Myton House Farm' Ingleby, Barwick. 20 years later it was used as packing when the farm was transferred to Northallerton Yorkshire. It was then transported to Perth Scotland with some cattle. From Perth Scotland it was brought to Perth Western Australia in 1992." [Rhona Dunwoodie WA]
