With the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became a source of interest for design. 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.
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
4 drops @ Length 8ft 10 x 32 in; 2.7m x 81 cm
Very good. The background is slightly patchy due to the dye rather than fading. Ask for photos if you cannot see.
I am prepared to sell a pair of drops together.
