This is a superb pair of antique French ticking curtains dating from about 1920.
As curtains they would add a striking finishing touch to a vintage interior or they would provide masses of textile for projects. The tight cotton weave of the textile is very strong and the ticking would be perfect for upholstery.
The curtains are unlined but the ticking has good weight and they drape beautifully. The unusual red and turquoise colour combination of the stripes cuts a dash and works perfectly.
The top and bottom of each curtain is hemmed and the sides are the selvedge of the ticking. There is a little fading from the sun at the meeting edges of the curtains.
The curtains are in good vintage condition and in our opinion are ready for use. The textile feels clean and fresh but there are some faint storage marks which should lift with a quick launder. There is just one small hole towards the top of the right hand curtain.
Each curtain measures :- 268 cm (8 feet 9 inches) long x 137 cm (4 feet 6 inches) wide.
This is a fabulous pair of antique French curtains to add an authentic vintage touch to either a period or contemporary interior.
Another divine antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
Please note that the curtain rings & tie backs are not included with the curtains.
