A vintage barkcloth piece, circa 1950s or 1940s. Pink and brown atomic cotton vat print barkcloth with teal & chartreuse shapes, black & gold metallic leaves.

The over 1 yard piece of fabric was cut from a bolt that was 1 1/2 yards wide.
This piece measures approximately 56" x 48" or 142.2 cm x 121.9 cm. There is however a slit cut into one edge near the corner that is less than 2" deep.

The edge is printed repeatedly with "Guaranteed to Be Vat Prints" and in smaller print, it is says something else, that I can't make out, perhaps the name of the manufacturer and/or style number (see photo #5 above)

Condition:
Excellent vintage. I can see no staining whatsoever. I am not sure if this remnant piece was ever used. It is cut close to a square, and was either the leftovers from an upholstery or curtain project, or it once served as one of these. If is actually was part of a window treatments or furniture, it is in amazing condition. I am leaning towards it simply just being a remnant from a project, because of the great condition, however, one side about 1" in from the edge has a crease line that is slightly faded. Maybe the fabric was just store with this 1" fold-over, or maybe it was a hem from it's original use. This is unclear. (See photo #5.) Other than that, the fabric is beautiful and has just a touch, perhaps, of fading and /or wear. This is difficult to say because of the typical texture of barkcloth, that this piece definitely has.

Amazing atomic find. Imagine what can be done with this?
