B1251 - Fabulous Pair Long Vintage French Chateau Curtains / Drapes, Romanex 1950's
This is the most fabulous pair of long vintage French curtains in an amazing 1950's Romanex print. The textile is a heavy cotton and the curtains drape beautifully.
The print and the colour combination are to die for. The textile is covered with a plethora of roses in stunning shades of purple and turquoise which look amazing against the vibrant emerald green of the foliage. The background colour is a warm dark cream.
The beauty of the curtains is undeniable and there is evidence that they have been much loved over the years. The majority of the textile is in excellent vintage condition and is clean and crisp. The textile of the outside edges of the curtains has however experienced fatigue from exposure to the sun.
On the left hand curtain as one looks at the pair, the fatigue has largely been lovingly darned but there are one or two holes. This fatigue extends to a max of 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) in from the edge of the curtain. The right hand curtain has more damage and this extends to 32 cm (12.5 inches) in from the edge. These edges could be cut and hemmed back to make a narrower pair of curtains in very good condition or the curtains could be left as they are and still look fabulous.
The tops of the curtains are sewn into pleats. The left hand curtain has hooks sewn on the reverse of the top. Both curtains have a generous hem.
We have left the curtains as we found them. They have not been dry cleaned. There are one or two very minor marks but these blend into the design and do not draw the eye.
Each curtain measures :- 266 cm (8 ft 9 inches) long x 80 cm (2 ft 7.5 inches) across the top and 122 cm (4 ft) across the bottom.
A fabulous pair of curtains to add an authentic 1950's glamourous finishing touch. They are from a carefully selected collection of antique & vintage French curtains & curtain accessories at 'La Belle Étoffe'!
