An amazing set of antique French curtain panels, dating to circ 1860. This wonderful set of curtains comes from a larger set (please see my other textiles for the matching panels). This set is 2 panels, STUNNING remarkably beautiful curtains. They are backed in a natural cotton. The fabric is a medium to heavy weight cotton with a small amount of linen in the weave. The pale, faded taupe ground of the fabric was roller printed as was some of the fabulous Prussian blue design. Some appears to have been hand block printed on top of the original design. These panels are hand stitched together at the seams and there are some later alterations to the length with machine stitching. The little rosettes at the pleated top are STUNNING, all hand worked. There are rings at the back for hanging. A marvelous find, once in a lifetime set!


MEASUREMENTS: These wonderful curtains measure approximately  63 inches wide by 91 inches long. The top measurement for hanging each is approx. 37 inches wide.


CONDITION: This textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition.  Aged condition, with some small holes dotted around and some pink staining at the top of one panel (please use the zoom feature to view closely). Each has a warm, aged patina. The backing has storage marks. There are some tiny rust marks, some pale marks. Not perfect of course, however perfectly wonderful for their age and use, stunning find!
