PLEASE DO NOT BUY






xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

TOILE DE JOUY ORIGINATED AT THE FACTORY OF JOUY EN JONAS IN NORTHERN FRANCE

THE TERM LITERALLY MEANS CLOTH FROM THE TOWN OF JONAS.

AND WAS ONLY IN PRODUCTION FROM 1760 TO 1843

THE CITY'S OF BORDEAUX,NANTES AND ROUEN ALSO PRODUCED THIS SOUGHT AFTER COPPER PLATE HAND PRINTED FABRIC.

THE TERM TOILE DE JOUY BECAME GENERIC AND WAS PRODUCED ALL OVER FRANCE WE STILL USE THE TERM TODAY.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

A very rare find this fabric was produced in Rouen in the 18thc around 1790.
Easy to identify because it has the description of each scene printed onto it.

Greek mythology it tells the story of Numa 2nd king of Rome , Anais the Persian goddess of love.
and Zoroaster a persian lord.

the lettering on this pillow reads
ZOROASTRE UNIS ANAIS A NUMA they are united.

THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE IS HAND QUILTED AND WOULD HAVE BEEN PART OF A LARGE BED HANGING OR DRAPE IN THE GRANDEST OF CHÂTEAUX ONLY THE RICH COULD HAVE AFFORDED THIS FABRIC.

VERY VERY EXPENSIVE IN ITS TIME,BUT LUCKILY THESE FABRICS WERE NEVER WASTED AND AS THEY WORE THEY WERE REWORKED AND EVENTUALLY GIVEN TO SERVANTS TO WHO MADE SMALLER ITEMS .THIS IS HOW THEY SURVIVED.

THE PANEL HAS TINY LITTLE DARNS HERE AND THERE AND A COUPLE OF VERY NEAT TINY PATCHES
.not meant for hubbys back support.

IT HAS FADED TO THE SOFTEST RASPBERRY RED AND THE DETAIL IS EXQUISITE.

I WAS LUCKY TO FIND SOME ANCIENT TRIM FROM AN OLD DRAPE FADED BY THE DORDOGNE SUNSHINE
.
I HAND TINTED ANTIQUE FRENCH LINEN TO A DULL MADDER RED IT IS DULLER THAN THE PICTURE SHOWS IN KEEPING WITH THE LOOK OF THE PILLOW.

FRONT PANEL LINED WITH LINEN FOR STRENGTH AND DURABILITY AND HAND QUILTED TO GIVE AN EXTRA SPECIAL FINISH

envelope opening and backed with the same raspberry linen antique linen

SIZE 23INS X 15INS

SHIPS WITH PAD REGISTERED AND INSURED
