One of the most spectacular of designs!~ This wonderful curtain is French and dates 1870. This curtain is part of a large set ( please see my other textiles for the matching panels) This panel is made using a GORGEOUS medium to heavy weight cotton and linen blend fabric. The true red  ground is roller printed and design is hand block printed in gray ~ this design is breathtaking , even more beautiful in person ~*~The edges are trimmed with a lovely, thin , simple trim ~  This set was from an enormous bedding collection, and the back of this panel has little hooks for hanging from a 4 poster bed. A rare and amazing find, one of my favorites!~ This textile would be stunning kept intact, however it would also be ideal for deconstruction and the fabric used for multiple projects such as upholstery , pillows, curtains, bedding etc !~  ( TT 1000) 

MEASUREMENTS: This wonderful panel measures approximately  182 inches WIDE at the bottom by 62 inches long. The top where it is gathered measures 36 inches wide ~*~ 

CONDITION : This fabric is in original, unwashed as found condition with light storage dust. There are marks on this panel in many area, they are large and warm toned, adding to the wonderful aged look of the curtain   however this curtain may not be right for everyone because of the marks! The tape is coming away in a few places ~*~ I'm nearly certain that they would wash beautifully ( soak in warm water, hand wash with normal detergent and hang to dry) however, I can't be guarantee! Most collectors prefer to receive the textiles in as found condition so this panel is left in it's original state ~*~  This curtain is in wonderful condition for it's age and use however Not perfect, but perfectly wonderful with light signs of time and use often inherent in these wonderful antiques! ~*~
