Vintage Pure Scottish Mohair Stole Shawl Hudsons Bay Off White 19” x 70”
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 100% mohair shawl made in Scotland for Canadian retail company The Hudson’s Bay Co. Difficult to ascertain age as the label is fairly generic in that coat of arms with "Seal of Quality" has been used since quite early on. There is a tag that reads “6/25”, perhaps a date code, but I can’t say for sure. I’m fairly sure that it is no newer than the 1950s, but may be substantially older. The Hudson’s Bay Co. has roots dating back to 1670 when it was granted a Royal Charter to exclusive trade in the newly discovered North American areas to the North and West of the Great Lakes. The company became a retailer in 1870, when trading rights were given up to the new country of Canada. Hudson’s Bay is well known for their distinctive four stripe wool trade blankets.
