Textile Designing in India 1873
 
A couple of years after the first international exhibition, 1851, took the place the renewal of the charter of the East India Company, Several witness whoi appeared before the parliamentary Committee appointed to inquire into Indian affairs gave it in their evidence that English manufactures should be afforded facilities to have an extensive Market for their articles in India.

At the same time Dr. John, Forbes Royle, who had been incharge of the Indian department of the first International Exhibition, impressed, upon the court of Directors the importance of forming a Museum in London to permanently Exhibit the products and Manufactures of India.

After the death of J.Forbes in 1858, Dr. Forbes Watson appointed as his successor. Regarding the distribution of the seven sets in India Dr. Watson recommended that a set be placed in each of the following places viz : Calcutta, Madras, Bombay, Kerachi, the North. Western provinces, the Punjab, lastly in Berar.

The set for the North Western provinces is not kept in any one of the cities recommended by Dr. Watson. It was kept in Provincial Museum, Lucknow to which place it was transferred from the Allahabad Museum in September 1878. In 1922 it was again transferred when the Provincial Museum Library was merged in the AMIR-UD-DAULA GOVERNMENT, PUBLIC LIBRARY, KAISERBAGH, LUCKNOW.
