Lang (Artefact)
  • Notes: STS notes: Portion of plaid c 1840-70 in STS collection. Lang gift 38/1. 64 inches by 65 inches. This thread count has been reduced when compared to the sample for display purposes. "This ITI thread count is estimated from a computer screen graphic so should not be taken as 100% accurate. Clan Laing Society website notes are as follows: "In 1983 Malcolm J. Lang donated a tartan that had been woven some time between 1840 and 1855 to the Scottish Tartan Society. The sett of this tartan and that of the Laing tartan recovered from the grave of George Laing were so strikingly similar that it was assumed for a brief period that they both could have been created by the same weaver. Using the sett of the donated tartan and that recovered from the grave of George Laing, the original basic sett from which both tartans were derived could be determined with a considerable degree of confidence. Although adapted for a half sett this too is an authentic Laing family tartan." See also #6096 and 2544.
