Antique French toile cotton fabric measuring 32 inches by 25 inches. This is a colored toile: off white ground with brown, red, green, and blue. The scene of a young couple picking cherries from a tree. There are Rococo motifs, a mandolin, and a quiver with arrows. While this claims to be 18th century, but with research, I see this textile is dated online as c1860s.
