Here is a very nice hand quilted bed jacket, which comes with a history. It was made by Mrs Herbert, pub landlady from Todhills, Byers Green, Bishop Aukland in Co. Durham. This was given to the sellers grandmother Ruth of Sleights House Farm as a wedding present by her mother in law Mrs Herbert. In 1973 it was then given in turn to her daughter in law Jennie Wearmouth of Hunwich, Bishop Aukland when Jennie was pregnant with her first child. Through all this time, the bed jacket was kept safely in a box, so has never been worn.
The bed jacket is fully reversible. the front has daisies and twists, with a running feather up the sleeves.
