The pattern on this reversible linen furnishing fabric is called 'Mandalay'. It was designed by Felix C. Gotto for the Old Bleach Linen Co. in about 1935.

It in turn received commissions from ships and hotels. Old Bleach Linen was also one of the first companies to screen print designs onto textiles.
