Danish Hardanger Revisited

What is this?
Yesterday I posted about the wonderful Danish linens I acquired from my aunt. I mentioned one of them had a label. As you can see, it says: KB 91. I'm almost sure it's a maker's mark rather than a laundry mark. Wouldn't a laundry mark be written on the linen rather than a separate label? That's how our cleaners does my husband's laundry now anyhow!

So I'm on a quest to see if anyone has ideas as to what this is. My great grandmother's maiden name started with a B and she had a sister whose name started with a K. Could this be the mysterious "Danish relative" who made the tablecloth? Or maybe there wasn't a Danish relative at all and it was purchased and this is the manufacturers label. It's so hard to say. What do you think it is?
