Floral Chintz I

Scope and Content

Small sketches dating from the late 19th to mid 20th century, all floral in subject and predominantly chintz in style. There are designs by, amongst others, Raphael Fausse, Libert, Deubel & Gusching and Edmond Poiret. Some sketches resemble those by H. W. Batley, though they are not signed or ascribed as such. There are also a number of photocopies of designs. Some designs have been attached in multiples to single sheets of backing paper. Where this is the case, no dominant colour has been recorded.
