Stunning, unused 1940's screen printed cotton with a vintage children's print.
Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
Animals and ducklings fill this vintage children's cotton linen which I think dates from the 1930's or 40's.
The animals and ducklings that form the subject matter are screen printed on in red, yellow, brown and green. There are rabbits going shopping and serving lemonade, ducklings playing, a squirrel on a blossom-filled branch and a donkey pulling a cart.
This is honestly the most charming print I've stocked. The colours are soft and the pictures are beautiful - a perfect child's fabric.
This is unused vintage cotton. There are selvedges to both sides and the fabric is in good condition with no fading. There are a some marks dotted around (see the last pictures) but they are nothing major and may come out with a specialist wash. There is a faint fold line down the centre (again see pictures) which may well wash out with care. The characters measure between 10cm and 17cm in height and the vertical repeat is 38cm.
This vintage animal cotton is sold by the half metre. If you order more than one unit it will come as a continuous piece.
