1950s fabric VINTAGE PLEATED fabric pleated lamp shade fabric accordion pleats cotton stylized floral Mid century avocado green gold floral
2 yards" x 35 inches -- Rare find of original 1950s accordion pleated cotton fabric. This mid century stylized floral pleated cotton (or could be a linen - it has a linen like weave) was purchased at an estate of a Japanese family - it had never been unrolled and I had to unroll it from the original pleating paper in order to photograph and measure. Stylized floral stripe print with lots of 1950s era colors of bright orange, olive and avocado green, celadon like yellow and lots of gold metallic.
There is a Celtic like geometric motif in gold as well as black line drawn florals against the ivory background. Lots of pattern in this piece. This would make a stunning pleated lamp shade cover. These accordion pleats are crisp and tight -- a few rows on the ends will need to be ironed to tighten the crease. This will ship via Fed Ex rolled up in a long rectangular box to help prevent wrinkling or mashing down on the pleats. Any overages will be reimbursed.
