Grenfell Mat


This silk stocking hooked mat is from the well known Newfoundland and Labrador Grenfell Industries. As early as the 1920’s Sir Wilfred Grenfell was instrumental in teaching people in the out ports of Newfoundland and Labrador new crafts and opportunities to create additional income in the non-fishing season. Grenfell mats and other products could be seen at all the best cottages and houses from Boston to Montreal and England. There is some slight wear around the edges of this piece, and some very minor staining. Possibly dates from the 1950s.

Size: Approximate size is 7“ x 9“.
