Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1885

Registration notes: Count from the border setting of an old plaid from Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Viewed in 1997 by Peter MacDonald and thought to have been woven - probably in Scotland - between 1750 and 1885. The interesting aspect is that these are two offset pieces of cloth 26.5 inches wide by 134.5 inches long with a 5 inch fringe which are joined at the pivot edge. The pattern contains single full repeat roughly 13 inches wide plus an elaborate border sett approximately 13.5 inches wide that features on all four edges of the finished piece. See #6162 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) for the main body. See Tartan>history>research>Antigonish for full details.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
