Cowtan and Tout Chinoiserie Find


This is my latest eBay find-a beautiful Cowtan and Tout Chinoiserie fabric I won for $7.50. It has a cotton background with silk embroidered blue and white Chinese porcelain motif. Designer samples like this are a wonderfully affordable tip for small projects like pillows, chair seats, small benches, or wall art. This piece measures 28" by 35" and sells for $275.00 a yard retail. Designer samples are easily found on eBay and Etsy.
