Sleeping Beauty, a French toile c1920 in 2 colourways

This is one of my favourite early 20th century French 'toile' designs depicting scenes from Perrault's fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. I am sure I have posted this before, but it is so beautiful, and I only recently came across the purple version. I have now had it in two beautiful colourways: grey on white & purple on ivory, I like them both equally, and wonder if there may be any other colours still to find! It would be fabulous in blue on white, or even in pink.

I used the grey textile for my website logo and business card, as it is so photogenic. I have a piece of each colour saved for framing, but am still waiting to find exactly the right frames...
