Two Jardine Matheson Cloth Wrappers for Silk or Cotton Bundles with printed design mark and company name

Two unlikely survivors from Jardine Matheson. These are the wrappers of presumably a roll of cotton for export from Japan. Numbered 182 and 183 respectively along with 47 Yds (Yards) indicating the length of each roll. Probably late Meiji (c1900-1910) but possibly earlier. They appear to be made of cotton.

 

Each measures approx. 114 x 29cm

 

In very good condition. Fraying at edges as expected. A few minor marks. No smell or mustiness.
