A set of three scraps from a rare 1930s, sheeting weight cotton chintz fabric by the unrivaled A.L. Diament & Co., the oldest continuing wallpaper company in America.
Likely the design was a period adjustment of an earlier print in a similar theme as this has distinctly 1930s floral notes but echoes back to 18th and 19th century design elements as well. This is such a buoyant and distinct piece with its clustered and overlapping floral vignettes, perfect for cottage chic, granny chic, and shabby chic decor. We have a large piece of this fabric, too.
SIZE: Each of the three scraps is 7″ wide x 11.25″ long.
FIBER: 100% cotton, lightweight, perfect for sachets, appliqué, or quilts.
COLORS: Set includes Sky Blue/China Blue; Teal/Russet; Taupe/Green/Yellow.
CONDITION: Superior! No cardboard or paper backing except a small easily-removed tag.
All sales in this section are FINAL SALE.
