BLOCK-PRINTED COTTON  British, ca. 1780–90, Although white-ground calicoes were more popular overall, dark colored grounds were particularly fashionable in the 1780s and 1790s. Barbara Johnson (1738–1825), a British woman of the rural gentry, kept a scrapbook of her dress fabrics; included among these is a black-ground calico with a small, trailing floral pattern (V T.219-1973), purchased in 1787, which is very similar to this example.
