designed by Mold, Winifredabout 1930

Sketch design for a printed textile, featuring seperate bunches of harebell, columbine, sweet william and anemone with grasses. Harebells, anemones, sweet Williams and columbines were cottage gardens flowers commonly used in dress designs and furnishing chintzes in the 1920s and 1930s. The absence of a clear repeat suggests that this is not so much a finished pattern as part of a planning process, an example of the 'thinking on the page' for a dress pattern.
