Good question. I'd be interested in seeing other opinions because it's an unusual variation. The style is one that was used but the backing looks a little odd. Without seeing them first hand it'd be difficult to judge but they look fairly ok to me.
Cheers,
Alex

I am with Mr Mike. No problem with that pair. I once owned a set just like this with the white muslin backing. Nice wing.
