1815 Bannister Hall Chintz

45.00

When the War of 1812 ended in December, 2014, English textiles were "dumped" on the American market in an attempt to thwart the development  of their textile industry.  This is one such example.  Circa 1815, printed by the Bannister Hall printworks near Preston, Lancashire, this is a fabulous example of a block-printed chintz.  The isolated "islands" were distinctive around 1815.  I have a strip that measures 12 3/4 inches wide and has 4 repeats of the "island" with the bird and tree.  The repeat measures 15" in length.  The price listed is per repeat.  There is a little shattering in the brown background.  This piece was lightly quilted at one point and I'm guessing the shattering is where it was folded too long.  I have shown that in the second photo.
