Founder William Booth and his early compatriots pioneered the Army by storming the cities, villages and countryside of England. It was in Whitby that Elijah Cadman hung posters soliciting 2,000 men and women to join “The Hallelujah Army.”
Our English artist, Derek Brownsword, grew up in Stoke-on-Trent and painted for some of the great ceramics factories there, including Royal Doulton. Derek’s watercolors of English scenes are captured here on our fabric placemats, reminders of The Salvation Army’s beginnings.
Each placemat is a large 12″ x 18″ and will accommodate almost any place setting. Placemat backs are black 100% heavyweight cotton and fronts are 100% heavyweight polyester. They are washable in cold water.
Placemats are sold individually and include a card about the early Salvation Army in England.
