An original design by the English illustrator & fabric pattern designer Pat Albeck for Cuckoobird Productions Ltd, Peckham Bush, Tonbridge, England.

Pat Albeck once reflected happily "that there was probably not a household in the UK that did not contain something designed by her; a tea cosy, a curtain-pull, a pin-tray or a tea towel".
She was proud to be labelled “queen of the tea towel”, producing more than 500 designs for the National Trust from 1967. She elevated a domestic article into the realm of art.
You will probably recognise some of her designs & book illustrations.
