These pieces of Lucienne Day cotton come in two sizes. All are original, created for Heals in 1958. The selvedges are intact and marked with the pattern name and designer.
This colourway is the same as the example kept in the Victoria & Albert museum, who describe it as: "Furnishing fabric 'Cedar' of screen-printed cotton, designed by Lucienne Day for Heal's Wholesale & Export Limited, Great Britain, 1958"
This vintage cotton is in very good overall condition. There is no fading and the cotton is strong.
There are three pieces each measuring 120cm wide x 100cm long. Each of these has an unpicked hem, so there is a faint stitch line around 20cm from the bottom. A couple of them have one small mark on the fold, and one has a small tear about 30cm in. The tear is small and easily fixed by backing. The two small marks may was out. All have selvedges neatly hemmed with full attribution.
There are two smaller pieces - 120cm wide x 45cm long. These are unmarked. Selvedges are intact but only partial attribution marks remain.
Please choose the size from the drop down menu. There are more mid-century fabrics available in the shop.
