They are hands down, without a doubt the best antique I have ever had the privilege of owning. We are also very fortunate to have two children, unfortunately their favourite game is to play hide and seek in curtains. So with a heavy heart these are now listed for sale so that someone can appreciate them rather than putting them in to storage.
The curtains are made up of a beautiful cotton velvet on one side and what I believe is probably silk on the reverse. The silk side is a lovely faded colour now but I would imagine have been vibrant at the time. These have strips along the top of both sides, coming from an age when people used and re-used.
I have never seen original curtains like this and I would imagine they would have been produced by a fairly upmarket shop such as Liberty. The floral design I think looks like a carnation stylised in the art nouveau way. Comes with their original metal hooks which have a registered patent. Condition- amazing considering the age but there is some fading and light marks and a small tear on the side. I will upload sizes and more photos tomorrow.
