Listing is for one panel, with discounts for multiple panels. There are a total of four panels available.
Straight out of a Shirley Temple movie, these charming curtain panels depict 18th century people moving about a bustling little hamlet. At first glance it might seem like the women are mid 19th century because it looks like the romantic hoop era, but I think they are just in panier padding because the man walking with them has a top hat, and the man standing in front of a small horse and buggy is definitely in late 18th century garb.
The piece was likely made in the 1930s Colonial Revival era, and there wasn’t much historic accuracy in depicting these types of scenes for decorator fabrics at the time.
There is saturate, vibrant color and sweet, gentle vibe certainly suggestive of a more innocent era. In between the village scenes a smattering of little nosegays fills the rest of the print.
Light comes through them in a warm, cozy way. Perfect for a nursery, child’s bedroom or playroom, or any nostalgic throwback space.
Excellent for a period 1930s TV or movie production or play, or lots of unique fabric to mine for an upcycling project.
STYLE: The curtain style is pleat-top, café length.
FIBER: This is an unusual cotton but I do believe it is a cotton, perhaps with a slight early poly blend, but dominated by cotton.
SIZE: Each pleat top panel is 18.25″ wide at the top and 32″ wide at the bottom; 83″ long. (Curtain hooks not included).
COLORS: On a vivid pink background are cheery, bright colors of grass green, lemon yellow, periwinkle, creamy off-white, mocha, and black.
CONDITION: Very good.
LISTING: $89.00 per panel. Four panels are available. The more you buy the more you save.
ALTERNATIVE USE: Plenty of fabric for other projects if you were interested in upcycling the fabric to new projects.
ADD ONS: Option for us to convert these to pole pocket at $75. PER PANEL. DM me if you’re interested in this option and we can set up a custom order and a longer ship time so the work can be performed.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
