Textile Remnant "Concorde"

2001.281.1213 (RS235105)

Description

"Concorde" pattern\n This is a one overall piece with two attached colorways, three paper labels and one fabric label.\n The pattern of this cotton sample named “Concorde” shows a view of the famous perspective of the center of Paris starting with the Louvre and the Palais des Tuileries behind the Arc du Carrousel, crossing the Obelisque de la place de la Concorde surrounding by two fountains, climbing the Champs-Elysees and finishing with the Arc de Triomphe. But this scene is not only architectural, thanks to the presence of several characters on a walk on this promenade, by foot or in a carriage. \n
