A Delivery of 19thc toile Fragments for Study

















I have just received a very interesting package through the post, a small selection of early 19th century French printed Bolbec & Nantes toile fragments. While they are all quite small or tatty, all are of great cultural interest, helping me with my research. I have had pieces in a couple of these designs before, either exactly the same or a slight variation implying a different manufacturer or new copper plate or roller.

I always try to buy scraps like this whenever I can, as they are always good reference pieces; I keep some and sell some on to other curious textilophiles, they often get framed as the vignettes are so evocative, or are used for small projects such as patchwork.
