    Hi everyone!

    I recently found this charming geometric cotton print for sale, but I don’t know enough about vintage prints to tell its provenance. Can anyone shed light on its age and possibly an explanation of how you know?


    (Full disclosure: I’m looking specifically for fabric that would be appropriate forthe World War II era).

    Thank you so much for your expertise!

    It looks more 20s/30s to me because its so geometric and that colour combination

    It looks either 1930s, or post WWII late 40s early 50s. But it does not bring to mind the WWII years.

    Nice fabric, very cool pattern too!

    I can see why the late 40's/early 50's come to mind, but the pattern scale seems too small for those years and the colors more 20's/30's to me too.
