B1578 - Sumptuous Antique French Figured Velvet Faded Roses & Ribbons Throw / Tablecloth

This is a gorgeous antique French tablecloth / throw dating from the 19th Century. It is full of faded charm and would add an authentic shabby chic finishing touch to a vintage home.
 
It is made in a thick  figured cotton velvet and is particularly sumptuous. It has a beautiful ribbon and roses border within which is a lattice design with little roses at the crossing points.   A tasselled passementerie around the edge finishes off this charming old textile.
 
The colours are faded pinks and greens on a cream background - just lovely.
 
The textile is thick and crisp with good weight. It is clean & wholesome with just a few minor marks which fade into the design (please see photos). The colours have faded over the last 100 years or so and there is one small area which extends to about 5 cm (2 inches) long of wear in the centre. These characteristics of age do not detract from the beauty or usability of the piece.
 
The throw measures :- 128 cm (5 ft 7 inches) x 166 cm (5 ft 5.25 inches) not including the passementerie. The passementerie is 5 cm (2 inches) long.
 
A divine antique throw to add an authentic shabby chic statement to a room and another sublime antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
