Peacock Among The Ruins

175.00

The pattern used in this toile is the earliest dated example of a toile or copperplate print.  The original was inscribed "R. Jones" for its manufacturer, Robert Jones, of the Old Ford factory in Middlesex and was printed in 1761.  It was originally created from two separate copper-plates and was known as "The Peacock Among The Ruins".  I do not know how to date this piece that I have.  I do not believe it is from the 18th Century.  The panel that I have measures 37 inches across and 65 inches in length.  It is not a full repeat of the pattern.  It is backed with a loosely woven linen.  There are two small holes in this piece near the peacock and there is one area of staining.  I did hand wash this piece.  There are also some small holes in the back fabric.
