French antique red toile crafting from Rag Rescue

A lady who owns the Alchymyst's Study blog buys regularly from Rag Rescue. Before Christmas she made the wonderful purse you can see below, for her friend.
I love the way she has used part of the French antique red toile on the front of the purse.

Today I have listed four more pieces of wonderful French antique red toile. Two have already been sold but the remaining two can be found at the

Early 19th century French Toile de Jouy fabric . Pallas and Venus design - Jan1

This is a wonderful red French Toile de Jouy fabric design, dating from approximately 1806. The design is named 'Pallas et Venus' .

The stunning design, which is roller printed on cotton has rosettes in the background with medallions of various shapes containing images of putti, animals, Pallas the Greek name of the warrior goddess Minerva and wreaths of roses, to name but a few.

A lovely vignette of a lady being entertained by a gentleman plating a flute. The design also shows a park with a castle in the background and a sheep in the foreground.

Probably early 20th century.
