A wonderful find - a lovely, large hand quilted panel of authentic 1815 Toile de Nantes fabric - this design is known as "Le Galant Jardinier" and the motifs record the eruption of Vesuvius as described by Pliny. It was designed by Favre Petitpierre. The panel is quilted, backed and hand stitched to linen. It measures 193cms x 88cms / 76" x 35". In excellent condition with just one tiny patch to the very top left hand corner. There are some marks and holes to the linen on the reverse. A rare panel of very early 19th Century block printed Toile de Nantes.
