B1604 - Fabulous Antique French Long Richelieu & Filet Lace Tasseled Curtain / Drape
This is a fabulous antique French hand made Richelieu lace curtain dating from the 19th Century. We also have another one, B1603, which is shorter than this one listed in our other items.
The curtain is made in a cotton filet lace. There are 3 central ovals of fabulous roses and leaves fantastically hand worked in cut out Richelieu lace.
The top of the curtain is gently gathered onto a ribbon with cotton tabs. At the bottom of the curtain is another panel of Richelieu lace from which descends a gorgeous tassel & bobble fringe - just divine!
The curtain is in very good antique condition. It is clean and is a lovely snowy white. There are one or two tiny rust marks at the very top of the curtain. There are also one or two pulled threads and a few bobbles missing but absolutely nothing to draw the eye. The fringe has frothed to perfection over the years.
The curtain measures :- Length 263 cm (8 ft 7.5 inches) including the fringe which is approx 23 cm (9 inches) long.
A fantastic antique Richelieu 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. The last photograph shows it with the other curtain, B1603, which is listed in our other items.
