M. J. Whittall Associates was started by the Whittall family in the early 1880s and closed in 1956. They produced fine quality machine made rugs with wool pile. The company was so passionate about promoting the arts and the culture of rugs that they created the Whittall’s Anglo-Persians, a musical outfit during the 1920s and 1930s lead by Louis Katzman. The group was broadcasted on Boston radio. They recorded for the Brunswick and Vocalion lables.
