Hello and welcome to the Textile Trunk. This gorgeous Curtain is French and dates c 1880. Wonderful large scale exotic floral, heavy weight printed cotton front and the back is a gorgeous linen cotton mix, loosely woven. The design is simply divine! The large scale design is a show stopper.The tones are : blueish green ground, (more blue than green) pinks, teal, dark blue, pale blue, muted moss greens, dark green, peaches, purples! This textile has a matching piece to a set (please see my other textiles for the matching panel with borders). The top has a tape with metal hooks for hanging from a bed set (1 inch metal eyelet hooks) hand stitched to a tape. MEASUREMENTS: This wonderful panel measures approximately 65 inches WIDE at the bottom by 122 inches long. The top where is is hung is 44 inches wide.
CONDITION : This fabric is in original, unwashed as found condition with storage dust. There are some small marks, some fading, some small imperfection. The backing has a darker warm patina.
I keep all curtains in as found condition for collectors, however this panel can be cleaned or hand washed. It appears to have never been cleaned , so there is a warm darker patina, beautiful but perhaps not right for everyone. Uncleaned condition reflected in the price.
Not perfect, but perfectly wonderful with light signs of time and use often inherent in these wonderful antiques!
