Museum collection

Coarse weave From dept. binders:
This piece is probably upholstery fabric, has a vertical repeat of floral motifs with vases, angels, and birds. Produced on a wide loom...top and bottom ends have been machine overlocked. The cut velvet is the coarse, rug type of weave. Machine produced, it has neither interesting color nor design, and is too modern to be of interest in a historical collection...Condition is excellent and has not worn or faded.
