I'm adding Tablelinens today, and decided to feature this lovely vintage and hard-to-find cloth by Charles Demery, Souileado Fabrics. Demery has passed on now, leaving the firm to his daughter and son and the firm still functions today in Provence and is known for its connection to Pierre Deux.
This lovely 51x66 inch cloth is printed in shades of pink, green and ivory and signed Charles Demery. It is quite likely printed using woodblock technique - the grenier or attic of the old factory is stuffed with shelves of antique woodblocks that until a few years ago were regularly used to print the textiles made by the firm. The colours in this cloth are delicious and are as appropriate to today's decor as they were some 40 or more years ago. I'm going to be sorry to see this one go!

I also have other textiles from Pierre Deux and from Souileado: A mouchoir or handkerchief in traditional blue, red, mustard and green, several cushion covers for kitchen chairs and so on. As well I have some Quimper faience - mainly small pieces for display and two handbags and a baby tote from Pierre Deux - ask if you don't see what you want.
