Egyptianesque Hand Block Print
1870s

With the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became a source of interest for design. In Britain Christopher Dresser, Bruce Talbert and Owen Jones were all heavily influenced by an Egyptian revival.

I have four drops of this striking fabric which was bought in France. I am prepared to sell them as two pairs.

Description

The terracotta ground hand block printed with a large repeat design with a centrally placed vase flanked by two lions with female faces sitting on elaborate stands, all in shades of rust, pink, blue, cream and brow

Length 8ft 10 in; 2,7 m

Width 32 in; 81 cm.

Condition

Very good. The background is slightly patchy due to the dye rather than fading. Ask for photos if you cannot see.

 

Comments

I am prepared to sell a pair of drops together.

Price: on request
