The original antique document for this
pattern was purchased by the Colonial
Williamsburg Foundation for its collection.
Little is known about the origins of this
early French pattern, although the use of
multiple floral species emanating from a
single vine was a popular one. Exceptionally
beautiful, it illustrates how closely fabric
and wall hangings correlated in the first
three quarters of the 18th century. While its
large scale can easily compliment any spacious
room, the chintz works surprisingly well in
more intimate spaces.
