Sonia's Antique And Vintage Textiles. I have been collecting and enjoying my antique textile collections for over thirty five years. French Antique 19thC Gold Metallic HandEmbroidered On Silk Ecclesiastical Fabric.
MEASUREMENTS: 27"L X 20"W. This exquisite fabric I think was at one time part of a priest's robe.It is dramatically and scrumptiously hand. Embroidered in raised gold metallic threads. The embroidery is raised and still carries a magnificent gold.
Shine but with a lovely patina of age. The underlying cream silk is fragile and wearing out in many spots. This piece can be best used by salvaging the magnificent gold embroidery of roses, grapes with leaves. Backing is a finer linen. Also note gold sequin decoration.If y ou have any questions about this piece, please do not hesitate to ask.
