This beautiful 18th century print was actually inspired by a small token left for a girl in 1759 at the London Hospital.  The textile that survived showed the stripe motif as well as a portion of the flower pattern.  Using many of the prints that we studied to formulate a pattern, we created a print that we feel emulates what this textile might have looked like.  A similar textile survives in a child’s gown from 1780 in the Henry Ford Museum Costume Collection. We also studied a gown from the collection of LACMA dating from 1775-1785.  The cotton cloth it is printed on is virtually identical in weight, weave and appearance to printed cottons we have documented.  These colors are matched to several textiles with blue grounds as well as the original token.  This textile is suited to gowns, petticoats, Ladies jackets of all sorts, children’s gowns, men’s wrappers and banyans and perhaps the odd waistcoat front.
