Beautiful, Vibrant Vintage Glazed Chintz Yardage Fabric, Cyrus Clark, Wisteria

Material:  Glazed cotton

Selvage Marks:  Cyrus Clark Co. Inc.  Wisteria  MCMLXXXVIII Teflon

Size:  Length ~ 4.88 yards (176 inches)  Width ~ 55 & 1/2

Quantity:  1 continuous length

Research shows that Cyrus Clark originally created this lovely floral Wisteria chintz pattern in the 1920's or 1930's, then it was reissued by Duralee in the mid 1980's.

This long length of true glazed chintz designer cotton dates to the 1980's, yet it looks like it was just rolled off of the bolt.  The colors, which included rich pinks, burgundies, blues, purples and greens on a cream ground, are bright and vibrant;  I believe very much as they appeared when new, almost 25 years ago.

The floral chintz pattern incorporates several floral motifs, including wisteria and peonies, with abundant foliage.

This yardage came from a lifelong vintage clothing and textile collector in the Portland, Oregon area, who collected very high quality items and was meticulous about storing her treasures.

The fabric is in extremely nice vintage condition.  It is clean, unused, strong and retains the original glaze.  I find no tears, rips, holes, snags, etc.  There is one very small area (a couple of inches) that appears to have a very light and faint water type mark.  See third image, lower right corner.  Probably due to the type and lightness of mark, as well as the fabric finish, it actually looks like it would sponge off, which will retain the nice glaze.  Bright, rich un-faded colors.

The fabric measure 55 & 1/2 wide,  with nicely finished 1/2 inch wide selvage edges on both sides of the entire length, so the actual chintz pattern design is 54 & 1/2 inches wide.  This is one long, (almost 5 yards) continuous length and the large chintz pattern design runs vertically.
This type of polished chintz, very popular since the early 1900’s, is still widely used today much as it always has been, for a multitude of purposes such as general home decorating, including pillows, slip covers, bedding, drapes, curtains, valances, slip covers, table linens and lighter upholstery, as well as handbags, garment bags and other similar items.
A nice long length of pretty vintage chintz yardage.  We do have more fabric, lace and vintage sewing listed in this category.
