    I hope this is the right place to post a question about a label. I checked the label resource page and it seems to date Laura Ashley dresses by the country of origin. But the label on the dress I have does not have a country of origin.

    Any ideas?

    Yep, this is the right place. Can you possibly post a picture of the label? The experts on LA will be along to help you with it soon.

    Yes, sometimes you can somewhat use the label to date a Laura Ashley.

    If it does not have the country of origin on the label, then we have to use other clues. As Ellen pointed out, a picture of the label would be helpful, as would a picture of the dress. We'd love to see it!

    Here is a pic of the tag. I will get a pic of the dress shortly.

    nothing special, the tag just got my curious since it didn't match the ones on the resource.

    Hi WWYRD!

    I'm not a LA expert but I've sold a "lot" of them.
    Just bought seven of them the other day, all different!
    Usually that's the label that goes with the Made in Great Britain items. I just sold one very similiar to this. If you could, it seems to help to fan the skirt out in the photos.

    Sitting on my lap, all scrunched up is a LA dress with the same label except mine says 'Made in England' right at the bottom.

    There is also a 'content/size tag' underneath that one. the sizes given on my dresstag are Uk, Eur, and USA. Does your dress have that?

    AND, underneath those two tags is another wee one, says 3020. Now, what is that # all about. I've not found any reference anywhere about those #'s. Are they a style #, lot# or what#?

    With out the 'country of origin' on the bottom of the tag, is it likely that those ones are made in the USA?
