Shenandoah Valley by Nancy Gere
A Civil War reproduction collection (circa 1850-1870) by Nancy Gere, features all of the classic mid-nineteenth century motifs, including a large floral, coordinating calicos and foulards, waving wheatgrasses and a serpentine stripe. The deep colors of navy, burgundy and purple are lightened with picotage and tan grounds. Mining a library of vintage scraps, Nancy Gere has delivered a collection of stunning beauty for the reproduction enthusiast!
Picotage is an old style of creating stipple patterns in textile printing when highlights and shadows are produced with different sizes of brass pins driven into a wooden block.
