B1434 - Divine Antique French Fine Muslin, Cornely Lace Long Curtain / Panel 19th C
This is a divine antique French Cornely lace curtain / panel dating from the 1800's. It is in good antique condition, is long and would be superb incorporated into any number of interior projects. We also have two other curtains, B1433 and B1435, which have the same design as this, listed in our other items.
The textile is a very fine cotton muslin and is absolutely covered in an exquisite floral design with vignettes and tendrils worked in fine chain stitch. The curtain is scalloped to the right hand edge and the bottom.
The colour of the curtain is antique white bordering on a gorgeous palest of pale dove grey. The left hand edge of the curtain is the selvedge and looks like it was once sewn. The top of the curtain is not sewn.
The curtain is in good antique condition but not surprisingly, considering the delicacy of the textile and it's age there are some characteristics. There is a sewn repair to the bottom and a scattering of tiny holes, of a size not worthy of darning, across the curtain. To the left hand side (to a max. of 30 cm, 12 inches in) are a few dark marks which would surely launder out. These characteristics do not detract from the wholesome nature or splendour of this gorgeous antique lace curtain. We have photographed the entire surface of the curtain for close inspection.
The curtain measures :- 278 cm (9 ft 1.5 inches) long on the left hand side & 268 cm (8 ft 9.5 inches) on the right hand side x 196 cm (6 ft 5 inches) wide.
A divine frothy French Cornely lace curtain to add an authentic château chic finishing touch and another gorgeous antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
Please note that the clips & tie back we have used to display the curtain are not included.
