Divine Early Vintage NOS Floral Brocade Fabric Yardage, Rich Ruby Red, Blue & Gold ~ Lush Flowers, Foliage, Swags, Scrolls & Tassels Pattern, c 1920s - 30s

Material:  all natural fibers;  rayon, silk
Style/Type:  woven brocade
Color:  deep red, blue, gold
Age:  1920s - 30s
Size:  Width ~ apx. 49 inches, selvage to selvage      Length ~ 1 yard increments
Quantity:  5 Yards available, sold per yard

Totally divine early unused vintage ( NOS ) new old stock woven brocade fabric yardage found on the original flat heavy cardboard bolt, stamped with a patent number dating to 1926.  The original price tag was present as well, reflecting a price per yard of $5.50, which would have been quite expensive back in the day.

This fabric features a luscious, rich jewel tone color palette of red, blue and gold.  The red ground is not a bright red, but rather a dark, saturated ruby, with subtle burgundy/wine undertones.  The blue includes various hues and shades from light to dark, which can display subtle purplish undertones in the right light. The gold color appears a rich, dark old gold shade, changeable to a lighter hue.

The fabric is a medium weight woven brocade, with a soft, smooth finish and supple, silky drape, perfect for soft furnishings, window treatments and upholstery, etc.  Nicely woven intact selvage edges on two sides; see second to last image.  Unfortunately no manufacturer or designer name noted on either fabric, tag or bolt.

We tested the textile via burning a small sample, which confirmed all natural fibers, likely a combination of rayon with some silk.

Due to the rayon/silk content and the nature of fully woven brocades, the colors are changeable, appearing different with alternate angles and/or light, which we have tried to show in the images above.

The pattern design is equally divine, featuring flower filled vases set on ornate stylized pedestals accented with swags, ribbons and tassels, and surrounded with floral branches and fancy scrolls.  We have placed a 20 inch long ruler on the fabric in several images, to provide pattern scale information.

The yardage is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition.  As mentioned previously, the fabric has never been used and it was obviously well cared for and carefully stored, as it appears very clean and nice.  When acquired, in our local Portland area, it was folded inside out on a flat bolt, so the right side of the fabric was protected from light and dust, etc.  We removed the fabric from the bolt to measure and check condition, then folded in the opposite direction and rolled the yardage on a round bolt, as we prefer to store textiles in this manner when possible.  Other than a center fold that would resolve with press/steam, and a few small storage related smudges at bolt end, near edges of fabric to the reverse only, the textile appears very much as we are sure it appeared when manufactured, apx. 80 plus years ago.  The fabric is very strong, stable and supple, with rich, vibrant color.

After noticing the patent number stamped on the original bolt we researched patent info to help confirm our opinion on approximate date of manufacture for the yardage, and we have included a copy of the online information registered for this number, which provides design and date details;  see last image.

A wonderful hard to find lot of new old stock finely woven brocade yardage, featuring a divine color palette and really attractive pattern design.  Traditionally this type of fabric would have been used for general upholstery purposes and window treatments, such as drapes, curtains, swags and valances, as well as soft furnishings like pillows, cushion covers, slipcovers, bed skirts, screens, etc.  Today similar applications would still be appropriate, as well as many other ideas conceived by the creative designer or decorator.

Yardage will be cut to order in one continuous length.  We actually have apx. 5.30 yards of this brocade, so if it is purchased in its entirety we will send the whole lot for the price of five yards, otherwise, for incremental purchases we will add some extra inches with each one yard length, which is our policy for all yardage sold, whenever possible.  Also, due to shipping constraints yardage will not be shipped with original bolt, but rather loosely folded with separating paper layers.

ORDERING DETAILS:  If you wish to purchase more than one yard, which is the minimum purchase, please type the desired number of yards, from 2 to 5, in the white QUANTITY Box below and then click the ADD TO CART Button. The appropriate total for your selected amount of yardage will be calculated and shown on the resulting Invoice.
