ionracas: Art Nouveau fabric

I bought this fabric at the market day in Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland, a few weeks ago. I thought it was curtains, but it turns out to be two two-metre lengths of fabric which has been hemmed on all sides. It is by Liberty of London, the department store which popularised the Arts and Crafts style at the turn of the century. As you can see, the pattern is "Clementina". I think it's probably from the seventies, but a reprint of an Arts and Crafts/Art Nouveau pattern.

I paid 5 euro, it would cost me about 100 euro to buy from a dealer. Hooray for bargains!

The colors look 70s, too. What a great print and lucky you for finding it.!
