This antique French fabric is titled "Paris Monuments" and was printed in France, Circa 1820.  ~ Ahhhh PARIS ! ~*~ This antique toile depicts several monuments of Paris. The central landmark is the Colonne Vendôme which was opened in 1810 in Paris. This monument, made to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Austerlitz, features Napoleon at its pinnacle.  This beautiful deep purple tone was made using an iron mordant and was printed on cotton with a plain weave.  A truly rare, limited, original print in a gorgeous timeworn wooden frame!

This beautiful and completely original, authentic piece is ready to hang in celebration of the quality and history of antique textiles!  I've framed this wonderful antique French toile fabric in a timeworn antique frame to showcase the beauty and quality of this piece, but also to preserve these kinds of rare (and getting rarer) textiles for the future.  I've fallen head over heals for this new framing adventure.  In this new collection I've hunted high and low for JUST the right antique frame and combed through my collection of many thousands of rare textiles to find just the right pattern for each frame.  The fabric is mounted and the frame is backed in acid free paper. Modern hardware was added for easy hanging. Each has information about the framed fabric on the backing. These one of a kind creations are the perfect way to add French country charm to any interior. They also make the perfect gift for any textile lover. Sophisticated and 100% unique, an heirloom in the making. 

MEASUREMENTS : The outer measurements of the frame are approximately  28 inches wide by 32 inches long, by 3.5 inches deep

CONDITION :
Fabric - Beautifully printed, in gorgeous condition.

Frame - This is a STUNNING antique,  wooden frame. Wonderful decorative detail . There is a red velvet trim on the inner edge of this frame  ~  This frame has some chips and  is chipping!!! Pieces of the gesso are flaking off! I painted a few white spots with a gold paint and I'm afraid in the shipping there will be more chipping off, so please be aware that the frame may need touching up when it arrives, Unless, like me you love the distressed quality of this amazingly beautiful frame! ~

As a whole this piece of wall art is sturdy and ready to hang!
