A stunning late 19th century printed fabric from France dating c1880 this lovely fabric is a lovely nubby heavy weight, printed cotton called cretonne (thin warp, thick weft) This fabric has a classic c1880 pattern with wonderful arts and crafts influence! This fabric was intended to be used as heavy furnishing fabric! Lovely warm chocolate brown toned ground and the other colors include : pink , red, blues , greens and neutral I was very lucky to have found a very large group of these panels! They each have slight variations that were just too difficult to show in photographs! This fabric is ideal for such uses as : upholstery, pillows, curtains etc (PR 56). This fabric measures approximately 31 inches wide by 105 inches long. Eg: if you would like 2 panels that measure 31 inches by approx. This gorgeous textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition with light storage dust. The main condition "flaw" with this panel is there there is uneven fading. Some areas of the panel is heavily faded and some not! They each vary in fade, but all are faded unevenly! Each may have a small hole , a few tiny holes , small faded area etc. This panel is in lovely condition, however not without the signs of time and use often inherent in these wonderful antiques.
