B1650 - Stunning Antique French Printed Cotton Curtain / Drape, Flowers & Hirondelles
This is a stunning antique French printed cotton curtain dating from the 19th Century. We also have a long panel, B1651, and a smaller panel, B1652, of the same fabric listed in our other items.
The top of the curtain is lightly ruched onto a tape. The bottom is hemmed and the selvedges form the sides. There is a seam down the middle.
The print is formed by a plethora of flower and leaf bouquets. These are linked with garlands and tendrils upon which little hirondelles perch and around which butterflies flutter - just lovely!
The colours are a wonderful combination of greys and pinks on a cherry red background.
The textile is crisp and clean. There are just two small faint marks towards the top of the curtain (please see photos).
The curtain measures :- 236 cm (7 ft 9 inches) long x 145 cm (4 ft 9 inches) across the top & 160 cm (5 ft 3 inches) across the bottom.
An exceptionally pretty antique French curtain to incorporate into an interiors project. It is from a carefully selected collection of antique & vintage French textiles, curtains & curtain accessories, and decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'!
N.B. Any accessories we have used to display the curtain are not included.
