A set of five expressive floral fabric scraps rendered in a style akin to a late 18th century Indienne. Perfect cottage chic, granny chic, or shabby chic! This lovely early 1960s Stroheim and Romann print has a coziness to its riot of flowers. Charming illustration in both the flowers and the foliage.
Beautiful tulips, roses, anemones, stock, and peonies in a soft hand and easy drape. #19098 in the Stroheim archive and made in conjunction with Bloomcraft. 100% cotton sheeting-weight fabric.
COLORS: Saffron & Willow; Apricot & Moss; Blue & Fern; Yellow & Green; Rose & Sage.
SIZE: Each of the five scraps is 7″ wide x 5″ long.
CONDITION: Excellent overall. There is cardboard/paper backing on 1′ of the right hand side of each piece. These may leave stains on the back when removed. There’s a woman with a youtube video for removing these: https://youtu.be/1RQVI8BjwJ0?t=66 Otherwise cut them away and the pieces will be 6″ wide.

MAKER: Another immigrant success story, Julius Stroheim founded a luxury upholstery and fabric business in 1865 in New York called Schneider, Stroheim, and Co., which broke apart in the mid 1880s to become Julius Stroheim and Co. When its founder died, son Salo Stroheim joined forces with a Mr. Romann (sorry, can’t find his name), and even after Romann’s death the firm, which had grown wildly in the early 20th century, both domestically — including Los Angeles and the Hollywood scene — and internationally into Asia and Western Europe, kept the name Stroheim and Romann in order to capitalize on its well-respected brand. Typical of the industry as faster fabric fashion took over in the late twentieth century era of globalism, firms merged, and thus the Stroheim name and its coveted archives were sold more than once, ending up today with Fabricut.
