I purchased a ledger from an auction in January that included some specimen cloth labels for the UK. I think the printer was Maclure & Macdonald lithographers of
Glasgow -lots of examples of this in the ledger. Here are the cloth labels. There is a great US resource for cloth labels online at the American Textile Museum. Scotland
Here are some goodies.
