Whoa! Check out this fabric!!

As I regularly troll for period prints, I liked this one from Moda, but wasn't sure when it was good for, or if it was even authentic for anything. 

But then I saw this pop up on Pinterest and totally freaked out (in a good way)! Looks like the Moda print was copied from this one in Winterthur, dated c. 1815-1820! Cool!

Looks like a textile designer was "inspired" by an extant print, haha! This is an awesome find, thanks for sharing.

That is beautiful fabric! I found some lovely printed fabric on sale last time I went to the shop, about $9 a metre down from $20 a metre! I was so excited!
