Desirable old Indian Head fabric yardage in a hard to find French Country Blue scenic Toile.

The charming Toile de Jouy pattern design features vignettes of frolicking couples dancing and playing in a French country manor, or chateau park like setting, complete with gazebos, fountains, bridges, ducks, trees and flowering vines.  The cream y white vignettes,  resembling finely engraved etchings, are beautifully highlighted on what I will call a French country, or Wedgwood blue ground.

Research indicates that the Indian Head brand label has been known since the 1820's. Sanforized, which guarantees the fabric will not shrink more than 1%,  began appearing on yardage selvage in 1949, but was apparently dropped by 1952, effectively dating this particular fabric to that brief time period.
Indian Head cotton was designed to mimic linen and one familiar company slogan was;
use it instead of linen.  By all reports the fabric was highly regarded and extremely popular.
The vintage Toile fabric offered here is a very nice medium weight, with the original polished or glazed finish and it certainly does look and feel like linen.
The yardage is in exceptionally nice condition.  I examined all of the fabric as I unrolled it for measuring and I did not note any issues whatsoever.  The entire bolt is clean, free of holes, tears, rust and any other damage or problems.  No fading.  It was obviously well cared for and carefully stored as the fabric remains effectively like new.

This type of high quality Indian Head fabric is considered an obsolete, lost yard good, as it is no longer made and only available when vintage pieces or yardage is discovered in old fabric stores, warehouses, estates, etc.  Solid colors can be found with some searching, but prints like this Toile, so reminiscent of the wonderful antique French Toile de Jouy, Rouen and Nantes, make this large bolt a rare find.  The fabric is well suited and often used for all kinds of decorating and design applications, including window accents, such as drapes, valances, curtains, and swags, as well as bedding and upholstery like pillows, bed skirts, duvet covers, slipcovers, etc.

This particular vintage bolt was discovered in an old Portland, Oregon estate, along with one drapery panel made from the fabric.  The panel is also offered for sale here on our site; please see link on the left side of this page.
 

As stated above, we have 10 Yards remaining on the original bolt, to be sold by the yard; cut to order in one continuous length.

UPDATE:   Current Available Yardage =  0 - ALL SOLD
