Response to Crowns
Thanks for your post. Interesting. I'm now comfortable with the idea of cloth crowns not being some one-off type of thing as your examples differ in pattern from mine yet also appear to be production-quality items.
I'm still intrigued by the backing material -- blue vs dark blue/black. I'll dig through my photos again but am pretty sure the few showing the crowns being worn were on blue-grey. The pair on my BD blouse are definitely blue and, unless my vet is mistaken on when they were put on, would tend to indicate that either/both were available?
I've looked through my postwar stuff and the trend in the 50s apears to be brass versions of the QC style.
I may repro these in both dark and blue-grey backed versions
