John Piper Arundel

Marvellous design by one of my favourite mid century modern designers.  John Piper (1902-1993) designed stained glass windows for Sanderson's new showroom in Berners St, London W1. Piper designed the stained glass windows for Oundle School chapel and then reinterupted the design as a textile Arundel, one of five fabrics designed for Sanderson's prestigious Centenary Collection in 1960. The colours are wonderful and were printed on a high quality fabric. This would look stunning mounted on a stretcher and hung. No need for glass. The colours will sing out. Let us do this for you.

Sanderlin fabric is a high quality satinised cotton.


Arundel. An original screen print by Sanderson on the selvedge, cotton sateen Sanderlin with fifteen narrow panels of colourful deisgn, in orange, turquoise, red, grey, ochre, green, blue, 3 ft 4 in x 4ft 1 in  in; 1.15 x 1.25 m. 


Excellent. The selvedges have been reduced slightly but luckily still have the printed attribution.
