Here's one for the fabric nerds!✂Rare 18th-19th century American reproduction fabric by Greeff. Part of the American Legacy III collection produced in 1965 in collaboration with the Henry Ford Museum. 🚂👏🚂In efforts to revive American patterns of the 18th and 19th centuries, the Henry Ford Museum partnered with Greeff Fabrics in the 1960s to replicate authentic designs found on antique quilts, coverlets, and wallpaper. This particular design is called “Lucy” and the floral stripe pattern has been screenprinted in soothing BLUE GRAY ink on IVORY cotton. I have found its registered copyright, but no backstory as I have found for other American Legacy fabrics. My best guess is that this motif came from a remnant of Civil War Era wall paper, but it could have been taken from an earlier design. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History houses the Greeff Fabrics, Inc. trade catalogues of these historical designs.
