Rampley & Co The British Empire Exhibition 1924 Commemorative Pocket Square
This stunning silk pocket square has been reproduced from an original cotton handkerchief produced for the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924. Originally seen as a souvenir piece, it shows the huge Palace of Industry alongside pavilions of Britain's dominions, colonies and dependencies erected for the exhibition on the 216 acre site in north London.
The central motif of "British Empire Exhibition, Wembley 1924" inscribed across a belt, is surmounted with flags, with the remainder printed with framed scenes from all over the British Empire, in a montage superimposed on a black ground, with a border of red, white and blue design. The scenes depicted include: Malaya, New Zealand Pavilion, the Palace of Industry, Palace of India, Palace of Burma, India Courtyard, Hong Kong, Australian Pavilion, Union of South Africa, Bridge Across Lake Newfoundland, The Ceylon Pavilion, and Her Majesty's Government building.
