Originally produced at a smaller scale in the 1950s, this wider width release was likely produced in the 1980s. It's a vintage Brunschwig and Fils titled "Les Enfants" and is in the cranberry and gold colorway on white. Inside ornately framed lozenges bordered by drapes, ornate foliage, swags, and fruit are genteel domestic scenes of woman and children playing, eating, and doing tasks.The background print is a repeating shield or coat of arms in tone-on-tone cranberry. Sprinkled throughout the toile are small oval lozenges with scenes of a rural manor and more humble farm.
Mid weight, firm hand, with a weave that reads more as a linen than a cotton. Perfect gift for 19th century reenactors who would love this for home decorator uses, whether pillows, upholstery, drapes, or applied as fabric wallpaper (see Google search for DIY tutorials on wallpapering with fabric). Mid weight means it could also be used for a garment, like a skirt, though typically this would be for decorator purposes.This item is in the category "Crafts\Fabric".
