The velvet borders are backed in a light weight Turkey red cotton, and there is a hessian interlining on the bordered sides.The sides are trimmed with a deep, rich toned sienna velvet. The ground fabric is a woven linen with nubby gorgeous weave. The border of this textile is painted in the style of Indienne chintz , 18th century borders spectacular design!! This textile has small rings on the back for hanging. An extraordinary find, a masterpiece of craftsmanship and time! MEASUREMENTS: This lovely work of art measures 79 inches wide by 122 inches long.

I politely request that all items be paid for within 7 days. The individual condition will be described to the best of my ability however, often flaws are inherent in vintage and antique textiles. When describing my textiles, I use my best judgment, knowledge and experience to estimate their age. I have had many years of research and hands on experience with these wonderful textiles. I describe items as Antique if I estimate the age to be 100 years of age or greater.I describe items as Vintage, as per the dictionary definition, if I feel the textile has age, or is outdated or old-fashioned, dating from the past. If I use both Antique/Vintage when describing a textile, it is because I feel the textile is most likely 100 years of age or greater, but may fall just short of that date. I often work in collaboration with other colleagues and textile specialists to ascertain the approximate age of my textiles, however ultimately any statement of age is a matter of best judgment onlyI also use my best professional judgment to ascertain the fiber content of my textiles, using sight and feel and where possible historical information and context to help me to identify plants used in a particular era. However, because my textiles are old, any statement of fiber content is again always only my best professional assessment. I feel privileged and honored to bring these textiles to you, I sincerely thank you for your interest.
