Speachless... Great marriage of scale and theme...
Found somewhere on a Desert Flea...
I'm finding this detail of a Tudor-style

What a brilliant idea to incorporate the intricacy, and specific flavour of the 18th century script into a new textile design. It is so beautiful...
Below is a little older and rather "long" idea. -->
Of course, I collect old magazines.
In one of the issues of beautiful French art magazine
"Connaissance" I have seen this:
