The counterpane is made of five panels of fabric, each 24" wide. The four-poster flap is 32" long. The fabric is printed in a repeating floral print, within the window pane checks. Mostly brown with green and white. The fabric is still very shiny. The counterpane has a narrow hem all the way around
