This amazing textile is an antique French curtain panel, dating to circa 1860. This wonderful curtain comes from a larger set (please see my other textiles for the matching panels). 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. The tape on the edges if faded and worn  There are rings on the back for hanging ~*~ A marvelous find, once in a lifetime set!

MEASUREMENTS: This  wonderful curtain measures approximately 91 inches long by 64 inches wide at the bottom. The top measures 35 inches wide. I have a number of matching curtains, very similar in size and condition each! So, I'm selling them as a quantity, so if you would like multiple panels, simply change the quantity button to the number of panels you would like !

CONDITION: This textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition. This is a wonderfully aged textile, faded with time. The trim is faded and damaged in places with some small holes dotted around (very small, less than pea). Some tiny rust marks, some pale marks, some tears in the backing and storage marks on the back. I have a number of matching panels, each has some flaws, some water marks etc, but each from the same room set and each very similar indeed. If the exact condition of your panels is important to you, please email before purchase to discuss. This textile is in wonderful condition for it's age however not without signs of time and use often inherent in these wonderful antiques. Please use the zoom feature to view condition closely.
