SOLD: Archive glazed cotton chintz by Colefax and Fowler, a perfect 6.5 meter length x 135cm, ‘Eugenie,’ c.1980

17th November 2020|

'Eugenie,' A Colefax and Fowler Design, copyright 1980: a classic full-blown, ' full-look,' glazed cotton chintz from the design studios of Colefax and Fowler. After John Fowler retired in 1971, George Oakes, the talented artist who had worked closely with Fowler on many private commissions, led the textile design studio. His chintzes drew on mid-to-late nineteenth-century documents alongside occasional Regency and 18th-century patterns, and undoubtedly greatly influenced fabric fashions in the 1970s and 1980s. The first collections included the renowned Bowood and Fuchsia chintzes, which retain their popularity and have remained in production ever since. 'Eugenie' is something of a rarity, no longer in production, a strongly patterned floral cornucopia with hydrangea branches , rose sprays and bright, muticoloured garden flowers, highlighted with white and deployed in densely undulating repeats. The ground is a neo-Victorian biscuit-coloured stipple on white cotton. All under a glazed sheen. UK Carrier/ postage charged at cost or buyer collects from London NW5
