This nursery rhyme fabric with its wonderful red roses and green leaves that frame each of the various nursery rhymes will steal your heart. The carefully executed faces of the children and the costumes, as well as the animals, will transport you back to your childhood and the nursery rhymes that captivated you when you were very young. This is indeed a rare piece. I have not come across another with the distinction and clarity that is shown here.
I am guessing this piece in from the 20's primarily because of the design and the mends that it has in a few spots. Clearly, it has been a much loved piece. I counted four places that had been mended as well as one stain. Some of these are in the photos. Also, there are a few holes but none that would be noticeable if you were to hang this piece in a child's room as a work of art, something I clearly believe that it is. Please inquire further is you have any other questions concerning the condition. This is a very old fabric and one that will never be seen again. Even if it is reproduced, it will never have the patina or enduring richness and quality that it has in this state.
This piece is slightly soiled in places. I have not washed it.
