Seller: Top-Rated Seller loodylady (7,763) 100%, Location: Burlington, Vermont, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 172970392726 ~*~ Hello and thank you for looking ~*~ This gorgeous antique French fabric has the most stunning floral and stripe design! Beautifully printed !! This lovely fabric dates c1840. The ground of this fabric appears to have been blotch printed, large areas of the warm caramel tone were printed on the ground first and the deep burgundy tone was applied on top using hand carved wooden blocks. The printing was very fine, lovely high quality sharp lines ~ expertly printed. I would guess that this fabric was printed in Mulhouse , France . This panel is a light weight printed cotton fabric and is constructed using one width with an additional panel hand stitched ( beautiful stitching!) to one side to increase the width, most likely was a bed curtain at one time! The fabric is light weight and not suitable for any project that requires strength and is ideal for decorative pillow, decorative upholstery ( light weight upholstery) , window treatments ( backed) wall hanging etc . A beautiful antique fabric! I've hand laundered this length ( goodness, did it need it! ) and it washed beautifully. There are tiny holes dotted all over this length , almost exclusively on the ground, so a corrosive mordant was most likely used and it's fractured with time. These holes are visible to the eye, and more visible when held to the light. A wonderful textile find ~*~ ( at the time of listing, I do have further panels of this stunning fabric, please email for details ) ~ ~ ( piece 110) MEASUREMENTS: I'm selling this lovely fabric by the length, so each purchase is for a length that measures: 43 inches wide ( seam runs 14.5 inches from the right facing side) by 44 inches long.
