(Bergsøe's publication was published in 1890 so this item must have been issued prior to that).

The shop ‘De Danske Væveriers Udsalg’ was founded in 1888 by C L Bach and the business was taken over in 1899 by C L Bjørnelund and later by his nephews and sold the products of Danish weavers.  This tiny brass tag was probably attached to one of the products they sold.

Valkendorfsgade was built after the Copenhagen Fire of 1728. It was formed from Store Helliggeiststræde, Niels Hemmingsens Gade and Kokkestræde. Nowadays it is a quiet street in the Old Town of Copenhagen, running from Købmagergade in the northeast to the Church of the Holy Ghost in the southwest where it makes a sharp turn left to join Strøget, a pedestrian-only street. The entire street was renamed Valkendorfsgade in 1881 in honour of Christoffer Valkendorf (1525 –1601) a Danish-Norwegian statesman and landowner and Treasurer and Steward to the king. Nos. 3, 5, 15, 17 and 36 all date from the first half of the 18th century and are tall, multi-storey listed buildings.
