This is a sample length of cotton with attractive printed end. This came with another similar length and may be from the department store 'Poinsard & Veyret', Rue Paul Bert, Saigon.  

The French arrived in Hanoi in 1873. Rue Paul Bert was at the centre of the French commercial district with French architecture, an opera house and department stores, including Poinsard & Veyret. 

Folded length as shown measures 25 cms x 83 cms. Actual length of cotton 90 cms. The printed end has attractive crown illustration.  Slight creasing from storage and browning to edges, apart from this good condition. Perfect for framing.
