William Shuttleworth and his four sons arrived in the United States in 1875 and set up a carpet mill in the Hudson Valley upon arrival and built up one of the greatest carpet mills in existence.

The story -

“In 1853, William Shuttleworth was sent by his father, an English weaver to a Paris textile exposition. He came back with a Certificate of Merit signed by the Third Napoleon. In 1878, John, James, Walter and Herbert, the four sons of William Shuttleworth, brought the certificate and 14 hand looms to Amsterdam N.Y. from England, to weave Brussels carpet. Having come to this country three years before, John, James and Walter established the original partnership and began producing rugs in a purchased empty factory.

The company incorporated as the Shuttleworth Brothers Company in 1902 and adopted the name Mohawk Carpet Mills in the 1920.”

Good condition. Crisp and bright coloring. No chips cracks or problems.

Great souvenir from Amsterdam, NY. and the Shuttleworth family with their fabulous history. And a wonderful blue and white collectible.
