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 had old newspaper stuffed into the pleats at the top to hold in place! ~ I couldn't find a date on the paper, but put it back in! ~ 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 1825) 

MEASUREMENTS: This wonderful panel measures approximately  110 inches WIDE at the bottom by  120 inches long. The top where it is gathered measures 55 inches wide ~*~ 

CONDITION : This fabric is in original, unwashed as found condition with light storage dust.  Simply WONDERFUL condition ~*~ They just don't get any better ~*~ 150 years old and stunning ~*~ 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! ~*~
