A very sophisticated and dramatic design! (please see my other textiles for many matching panels) This textile is an antique French curtain panel dating c1890. The front fabric is a wonderful Arts and Crafts printed cotton with dramatic large scale Indienne , stylized floral and foliage The backing is a light weight Turkey red cotton. This glorious textile has trim on the right facing and bottom edge. The top is pleated where it would have been hung with rings.
The matching panels of this have wooden rings, however the rings on this panel have been removed. I do have wooden rings in my private collection if the purchaser would like, I can happily enclose some. The tone of the ground is a warm aged beige natural tone and the other colors include: khaki , pale flesh, earthy, muted tomato red and a deep dark sienna purple. This textile would be wonderful used as a window curtain, bed curtain, doorway drape, wall hanging, table cover, shower curtain etc or if deconstructed would be lovely for light upholstery, pillows , framing, lampshades etc A wonderful find (PR 58).MEASUREMENTS: This wonderful panel measures 104 inches long by 60 inches wide. CONDITION: This textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition with storage dust and some light storage dirt in places. If keeping intact, this panel should be dry cleaned only as I would be concerned that the red backing may bleed on to the front fabric.
The trim is lightly worn in places. Generally gorgeous condition , but not without signs of time and use often inherent in these gorgeous antiques.You will never have to pay.
