Hello and thank you for looking. AMAZINGLY beautiful and very large!! This stunning and very rare find is an antique French silk damask curtain panel , dating from the late 1800's LOVELY tone of antique pink!!
This curtain has the most beautiful woven damask pattern, wonderful peacock , floral and urn design. The woven damask is a lovely heavier weight, which is how this lovely textile survived in the good condition that it did! (Please see condition details below). This panel is backed in a light backing cotton. There is fringe trim that runs on the left facing side and bottom.
The fringe is more of a terracotta red/pink tone The tabs for hanging are gorgeous! This textile would slip through a rod as is I've kept this textile in unwashed, as found condition and it appears to have not been washed in many many many years, so there is storage dust on this curtain , however.. I feel it's best for this textile to keep it in unwashed condition if one plans to use as is. The side edge with the trim was exposed to light and has faded unevenly with time and there is damage along that side also (please see photographs) There are pale age marks on this piece in places nothing dark or glaring! And the backing has some storage dirt and vertical lines from hanging also (can be easily replaced) There are pale vertical lines also from hanging on the front (please see photographs) this textile is generally in excellent condition , however it's not without signs of time and use very often inherent with these gorgeous textiles!
A very very exciting find, please see my other textiles for the matching panel (#57). MEASUREMENTS: This lovely panel measures 114 inches long and at the bottom measures 82 inches wide.
At the top, where it is pleated it measures 49 inches wide. CONDITION: This textile is in as found, unwashed condition with light storage dust. Please see condition details above.
