"Bryce Canyon, Utah" dress silk, Mallinson's National Park series
- In late 1926 American silk manufacturer H.R. Mallinson & Co. introduced a bold new line of printed silks, twelve landscape designs, each available in from eight to twelve colorways (color combinations) on three different ground fabrics. The designs celebrated America's National Parks - then only a decade old. The designs represented all the usual styles necesssary for making clothing: allover prints, horizontal stripes, checks, a border design. This striking design depicts the Wall of Windows at Bryce Canyon (Utah) National Park, printed on Mallinson's.Indestructible chiffon voile, a sheer, plain weave silk. Selvage width; selvage inscription. Judging from drawings by free-lance textile designer Walter Mitschke in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, Mitschke designed this print and a few others in the National Parks series..
