Vintage fabric find: pressed leaves

I remember when I was little I used to collect pretty leaves (obviously it’s been a longstanding obsession!) and press them under a stack of our World Book encyclopedias – that’s what this vintage barkcloth reminds me of. It’s part of a stash I recently bought from a lovely lady who must have an extraordinary fabric collection, including some from a fabric manufacturer who supplied film sets from the 1940s to the 1960s! I took this photo when the fabric was still wet, so what looks like red is actually a beautiful burnt orange colour that contrasts really nicely with the teal, mustard and chocolate.
