Vintage novelty print fabric find colonial fabric rare


Shipping to United States: Free

This is a very unique vintage novelty print fabric featuring a Colonial Inn motif. You will be amazed at the detailing of the motif -- Please zoom in to see the sketched line drawn vignettes that include indoor scenes right out of 18th century Georgian colonial times: scenes include -- a servant woman and Irish setter standing on a staircase; a man and woman in the sitting room playing chess; a couple seemingly being seated at a table with wine goblets. Take a look and notice all the indoor details of the home from furnishings like cupboards, rugs, clock, picture frames, banister railings, and open windows to the mens and women clothing fancy details. This is a large scale print with a repeat of approx. 16-18". Muted colors that I have matched as close as possible have a sepia tone and include browns, soft peachy tones, sepia blush tones, sandy tans. FREE SWATCH to exact color match at home and check out the fabric weight. Based on the burn test, this is a poly / cotton blend - it is tightly woven and has a hand like all cotton. Excellent condition yardage that has been lovingly stored. Selling all in one listing -- Measures 5.5 yards long x 44" wide. Perfect for sewing up a 50s novelty circle skirt or dress. No selvage and no maker name. A great print for your vintage novelty and conversational fabric collection. Thank you for visiting my little fabric shop.
