Probably English, early 19th century

102” long x 26” wide (selvedge to selvedge)

Roller-printed cotton chintz (glaze is gone)

Fair condition – fabric has softly faded. Still strong enough to use, especially for restoration projects. Two small holes and stain (see fourth photo).

 

This fabric appears to have been part of a set of bed hangings. The original narrow woven tape is sewn to both ends.

Often chintz yard goods with a layout like this example were incorporated into patchwork or applique quilts. The floral stripes were used as borders. The flower motifs could be appliqued onto the quilt.

Each of the first four images show 1/4 section of the fabric length.

The lighting in these photos is uneven, but the fabric is evenly colored.
