I know this silk is at least 50 years old but that's all I know about it. Can anyone tell me if this is a Rice silk?

Thanks,
Nick

I cannot tell from your photos. It might be an old Marshall but the yellow does not look quite right. Could you back off a bit with the photo and do a shot?

I thought all the Rice silks had the logo on them? That could be a P&A silk.

It looks a Marshall or a Seguin who bought the silk business from Horace and Marie in the 1960'. The fuschia and blue are give aways. I suspect the yellow has faded over time though.
