Description

Available for purchase is this beautifully rendered Grenfell Labrador Industries Silk Stocking Mat featuring an image of a sailing ship.

Measuring 6" in diameter, this silk stocking hooked mat is very old. In good vintage condition. See pictures.

Shipping will include insurance on this item.

The Grenfell Mission was a medical mission active in Newfoundland and Labrador in the first half of the 20th century. Wilfred Grenfell established a cottage industry known as the Industrial which produced the now well-known hooked mats and other Industrial products.

The quiet months of February and March were known as the "matting season" along the rugged coast of northern Newfoundland and Labrador. It was a time of respite from the fishing season. Decades old by the time the Grenfell Mission began, the roots of mat hooking lay with the founding English and Scottish settlers. The women all hooked, most from their earliest childhood.

In 1892, when Dr. Wilfred T. Grenfell arrived from England, he met courageous, hardworking people who were fighting terrible odds against chronic disease, hunger, poverty and exploitation. From his determination to alleviate their distress, Grenfell's medical mission began. His conviction that outright gifts of money, food and clothing would offer no long term help led to the development of a cottage industry known as "the Industrial," which produced distinctive handicrafts including hooked mats. The mat industry rose to peak production in the late 1920s and early 1930s. It began to decline as the effects of the Great Depression reached the region and fell off dramatically after World War II.

In 1905, Grenfell met Jessie Luther, an American woman who had set up a sanitarium with crafts as part of the treatment. Excited by her methods Grenfell encouraged her to come north. In 1906, Luther journeyed to the tiny settlement of St. Anthony on the northeastern most tip of Newfoundland to establish a weaving project by which the local women could augment their families' meagre and unreliable income from fishing.

I love the Shackman miniatures, and this one is no exception. The inside of this trunk is as wonderful as the outside.
