Maria NiforosAntique Lace & Textiles. CIRCA late 1800s, early 1900s a rare pair of ornate Tambour dark echru curtains! They have not been laundered and were in storage for a very long time. The original owner had them lined with netting at the back. The design is rich and opulent and there is alot of work on these.
It is rare to even find curtains like this, let alone for them to be in good condition as hanging in the sun always caused deterioration. But if they do, then work will still be needed on the areas that are not as ornate. There is scattered dry rot, seems in one of the curtains more than the other..But still it is there in both... Again it seems to only have affected the plainer parts..
The Tamboured parts are very sturdy or course. If one was a expert.. Could the design be taken off the netting and reapplied to newer netting then fine but that is a job that would require alot of time and skillso best to use the elaborate designs in other ways.The netting that was added at the back is in strong condition I think the lady who owned these just wanted to preserve them as curtains for as long as she could. So netting underneath could be used also in soem ways. SO DAMAGED , work needed but alot of design to work with for other projects. The disparity of color is due to light , they are a darker echru color, will come up lighter when washed. We have given a estimate for international shiiping.
