This curtain is an antique, French HEAVY curtain panel dating c 1880. This textile is part of a larger set ( please see my other curtains for the matching textiles! ~) This curtain is a very heavy weight  and feels to me like a cotton and raw silk mix, nubby weave and uses an WONDERFUL and rare embroidered / tapestry look printed pattern. The ground tone is a dark, warm tobacco tone and the floral design is a lovely mix of muted tones of blues, reds , browns, khakis and blueish greens . This curtain is wonderfully long , and is backed in a natural cotton. There is no tape or rings at the top, so pincer clips would be perfect for hanging this textile exactly as is, or tape can be added. The fabric would be wonderful too used for upholstery projects! ( please see condition details below)   ~*~  ~*~( TT 901) 

MEASUREMENTS : This lovely curtain measures : 122 inches long by 44 inches wide at the bottom, the top is 34 inches wide ~ 

Condition ~ : This gorgeous fabric is in as found, not freshly laundered condition with storage dust. This curtain is in as found condition, and appears to have never been cleaned. I like to leave these textiles in this condition as some collectors require this condition, however this curtain has a musty smell  of dusty silk, so can be dry cleaned if one is sensitive to this  ( uncleaned condition reflected in the price) The fabric is wonderfully sturdy ~ a beautiful textile indeed! ~*~ This textile is 140 years old  and so has some light signs of time and use often inherent in these wonderful textiles !  ~
