2 - Placemat - 'The Garden of Paradise'

Another of Rachel's designs from her set of 12 illustrated silk placemats depicting Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales. With indistinct monogram and date. 

Approx. 138 mm x 177 mm (to inside of fringe – irregular).

The technique used to produce these placemats is presently not ascertained. The black outline may have been either block or litho printed, possibly followed by hand-colouring with dyes or another fast medium.

Three unnamed designs from the set of 12 were exhibited at Aberdeen Art Gallery in 1898.
