Wonderful lengths of glazed cotton. There are two longer lengths and one shorter. Lovely rich colours.This length is glazed indicating it has never been cleaned or washed, although it has been used because there are minute holes from stitching to the selvedges.  Cotton was glazed for furnishing textiles, mainly blinds and curtains. The fabric is passed between calender rollers at high temperatures and pressures to create the glaze, which repels dust. The background colour is more creamy than appears in the photos.
