Textile (France), 18th century
Moustiers ceramics must be viewed as part of a broader trend for pattern in the 18th-century French interior. The repeating bouquets on this printed French cotton echo the so-called “potato flower” design frequently used at Moustiers, and can be seen on the nearby tureen with yellow decoration. The motif has parallels in Indian chintzes of this period. This cotton was printed during France’s ban of Indian textiles.
