The pelmet is made in a superb deep pile green silk velvet.  It has a central panel and a panel to either side with cut out detail. The panels are created using a fabulous silk damask and brocade textile. The damask has a lovely smooth silk texture and the brocade has an urn of flowers design.

Each panel is fantastically edged using scrolled silk appliqué in fabulous shades of champagne and cream.

The pelmet is stiffened and is lined. It is in very good antique condition. There are some small holes along the top edge where it was once nailed to a batten but these are barely noticeable.
