Strange old felt Oil filter in Bentley & cyl

I found this strange old 'felt' oil filter when I dismantled my Bentley 6 cyl 1959.
Does anyone no where this filter come from and how old it is.?

That is a factory original filter but very old. It was superseded to the paper type shown in your picture in the 60's. I hope it has not been in your engine since then!

I wouldn't be surprised if previous owners just kept washing it out in gasoline (or what ever) and just kept re-using it.
