Toile, the subtly elegant printed pattern that tells stories in engraving-like detail, brings history alive. By 1797, fashionable toile offered printed classical designs reminiscent of English paintings. Among the most popular images were pastorals reflecting a romantic view of country life such as these idyllic views of Mount Vernon with George and Martha Washington strolling on the estate.
The Mount Vernon Blue Toile plate is 7 ½” in diameter. The plate is dishwasher and microwave safe.
