B1855 - Exquisite Panel Antique French Lyon Silk Brocade & Damask Textile, 19th Century
This is a panel of exquisite antique French Lyon silk brocade & damask textile dating from the 19th Century. It's quality and design are quite exceptional.
The damask and brocade are in alternating bands. The damask is in a sublime shade of teal and has a lovely flower and leaf tendril design. The brocade has an antique cream moiré background upon which are flower medallions with a flower garland crest and swags beneath. The medallions are vertically linked with a silken cord up which more tiny flowers wend - just lovely.
The textile is wonderfully crisp. It is in marvelous antique condition and appears to be unused. There is a light storage mark on the back where it has been folded (please see photos).
The panel measures :- 130 cm (4 ft 3.2 inches) wide x 143 cm (4 ft 8.25 inches ) long.
It is interesting to note that all of the edges of the panel are formed by selvedges and that it was therefore woven this size and has not been cut.
An exceptional panel of antique French silk textile 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'!
