I LOVE THIS SET! ~*~  ~ These fabulous textiles are a set of French swags and tails that would have been part of a bedding set originally ~ they are remarkable!! C 1870, I believe the fabric was printed in Mulhouse. The pattern uses the most wonderful jewel tones and each is backed in a turquoise cotton. The trim is simply remarkable ! ~ Just the trim alone is a show stopper ~*~ There are 7 pieces in total in this set ~ The trim is a wool and cotton mix and the fabric is a woven cotton , perhaps a small amount of linen in the mix. This pattern is a wonderful Indienne design, both roller and hand block printed ~ a once in a lifetime find, remarkable textiles! They would be perfect used for pillow making or lovely too reconstructed as part of a curtain set ~*~ They can be configured in a number of creative ways, this is only one of many!

MEASUREMENTS : These textiles are all slightly different in side, however the half moon shaped textiles measure approx. 39 inches wide by 38 inches long in the center, including the trim. The long side tails, are approx. 50 inches long ~*~ 

IMPORTANT CONDITION : I'm selling this set in original , as found condition not freshly laundered condition . There are some tears in the backing on a few, a tear on the side of another ( easily repaired ) There are some small age marks, some light fading, some aging to the ground tone. Generally they are in wonderful condition indeed, however they are not without the signs of time and use often inherent in these wonderful antiques  ~*~
