This pattern was achievable by weaving a checked pattern and brocading the small spot to add an extra embelishment. These small figured silks were very popular in men's suiting in the 18th century and could be found in lady's as well as men's clothing of the 19th century. Patterns in this genre exist in a French Merchant's book of 1764 in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museu This silk has a firm hand and is well suited for lady's and men's clothing as well as childrens along with accessories.
