Red, Pink & Blue Sprigged Cotton is a Reproduction from the Collection of Mary Doering by Burnley & Trowbridge

By the mid-18th century, printed textiles, like this Red, Pink & Blue Sprigged Cotton, were extremely popular, and could be affordable to even the lower sorts. English printers were versatile in their printing, and the patterns were wide and varied.  One-color prints to multi-colored chintz could be had.  Any pattern done in India could find a counterpart in England.  

This beautiful "sprig'd" print is reproduced from a gown in Mary's collection, circa 1800.  Its delicate pattern boasts 16 different motifs in shades of red, blue and lavender.  We have studied whimsical flower motifs similar to these, as early as the 1740's. The original textile retains its blue thread selvage, distinguishing it as an English textile.  It was a popular pattern from the late 18th century, into the 19th century.

  • This Red, Pink & Blue Sprigged Cotton is lightweight with a soft, smooth hand and good drape.  
  • Based on this and similar prints in surviving garments, this Red, Pink & Blue Sprigged Cotton is well-suited to Ladies and Children's gowns and jackets, accessories, pieced linings and hem bands (as seen in original garments), and Men's wrapping gowns.  
  • Red, Pink & Blue Sprigged Cotton is 100% Cotton, 50 inches wide.
