This lovely fabric was printed in Alsace, France, circa 1868.  This wonderful printed fabric depicts a gorgeous jungle scene with a charming pair of lions as the focal point.  The design was block printed on to cotton and then glazed.  A length of this fabulous French fabric is also held in the Musée de l’Impression sur Étoffes in Mulhouse, France.  This frame holds one full repeat of this fabric. The quality in the printing of this antique fabric is absolutely stunning!  A truly rare, limited, original print in a gorgeous timeworn wooden frame!

This beautiful and completely original, authentic piece is ready to hang in celebration of the quality and history of antique textiles!  I've framed this wonderful antique French fabric in a timeworn antique frame to showcase the beauty and quality of this piece, but also to preserve these kinds of rare (and getting rarer) textiles for the future.  I've fallen head over heals for this new framing adventure.  In this new collection I've hunted high and low for JUST the right antique frame and combed through my collection of many thousands of rare textiles to find just the right pattern for each frame.  The fabric is mounted and the frame is backed in acid free paper. Modern hardware was added for easy hanging. Each has information about the framed fabric on the backing. These one of a kind creations are the perfect way to add French country charm to any interior. They also make the perfect gift for any textile lover. Sophisticated and 100% unique, an heirloom in the making. 

MEASUREMENTS : The outer measurements of the frame measure approximately 31.5 inches wide by 41 inches long, by 2.5 inches deep.

CONDITION : This fabric is in wonderful condition with wonderful patina and age marks, gentle and pale, just GORGEOUS ~ 

Frame - This is a lovely, distressed frame  with chips and heavy wear! One could paint the white exposed areas if the distressing was too extreme for your liking ~ it's a wonderful combination indeed !!

As a whole this piece of wall art is sturdy and ready to hang!
