There are two lengths of this beautiful fabric. The cotton was glazed, which repelled the dirt, and is therefore quite stiff. Ideally I would like to sell them together.
The design hand block printed on a pale beige ground with a white spot, with rows columns of intertwined acrons and oak leaves, flanked with full blown roses, poppies, lilac and other flowers, all in red, pink, mauve, green, pale blue and stone.

Length 1 - 6ft 10 in 20 1/2 in; 2.07 x 54 cm
