Bassett McNab #7236, “Pavillon,” 1985. A deep coral background with white feathers accented by millennial pink. Features tiger lilies in peach, intense coral, white, and light coral, with leafy green multi-toned foliage. Green, white, and coral spider mums, and blue/gray violent-like bundles. A firm hand chintz (see condition below).
COLORS: See pictures #7 & #8, taken in direct sunlight, for the truest representation of the vivid coral background and the bright airy feathers.
SIZE: 26.5″ wide x 52″ long
CONDITION: Excellent but at 35 years old the chintz has experienced some elephanting to the finish. It is well-ironed but will likely need fresh steaming and pressing before being stretched over a chair or pillow or used in other projects.
What Can You Make With This? A pillow, Roman shade for a small window, backgrounds for message boards, and more. Large enough to cover the seat of a small dining room chair, or for part of a chair or settee when a different fabric is used on other parts of the piece, such as this designer is doing: https://w9yards.com/custom-chairs/
Maker: With its roots in Philadelphia as early as 1894, Bassett McNab was officially incorporated in 1921. Always a traditional design house currying in the finest textiles and historically based designs, Bassett McNab was a leader in fine American textiles of the 20th century. The company has had many mergers and changes in ownership over time while retaining ties to the original family and always maintaining the original finer design aesthetics and archival references that define its style and making them relevant to successive design ages. By 2019 Bassett McNab was acquired by the American firm Stout Brothers Co., Inc., which was founded in 1927.
Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large oversized sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.
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.
