Beautiful 18th/19th French Century Silk & Woolwork Louis Chair Seat Panel:
BEAUTIFUL 18th/19th FRENCH CENTURY SILK & WOOLWORK LOUIS CHAIR SEAT PANEL
This is a beautiful late 18th or possibly early 19th century French silk & woolwork panel, originally a chair seat cover for a Louis chair, worked in silk and wool on linen canvas. The design is beautiful, delicate trailing foliage and roses in wonderful colours, it would look beautiful framed or perhapd made into a cushion/pillow front, or it could be used in a chair restoration.
It measures about 27" by 24" or 69 cms by 61 cms and weighs about 300g, there is some wear that could be restored; some loss of stitches and thinning in patches near the front of the panel where it received most wear, a delicate patina and some slight fading evident around the edges where the needlework was nailed onto the chair-back and is as it was. Holes around the edge where it was nailed in place and 4 cut-outs to each corner where it was fitted to the chair seat, see photos. Thank you for looking.

Welcome to Morgaine Le Fay Antique Textiles, a treasure trove of antique and vintage textiles maintaine by vanye90. I am an obsessive collector of beautiful fabric and other textiles, I love pattern, colour and texture, and this is reflected in the stock I buy. I love the 'shabby chic' look where the patina of age and use are celebrated, as well as the more utilitarian Shaker style and the pretty country cottage look, and always carry stock that would work well with these types of interiors. I source antique fabrics, linens, lace, embroideries, passementerie trims, ribbons, gold and silver metal threads and much much more. I have a fondness for French textiles, and you will find plenty here. I also look out for wonderful antique and vintage curtains, they have so much more character than newly bought ones. I am always more than happy to put together project packs for customers containing certain types of fabric or haberdashery, for example antique French tickings, florals etc, or different types of ribbon/lace. If you are on the look-out for anything specific, why not contact me, I may be able to help. I constantly update my listings, adding a few more things most days, so please save me to your favourite seller list, and check back often, I may have just what you are looking for! Please note that most of my items are antique or vintage, and show signs of age as noted on the listings. they will not look pristine and new, if this is what you are looking for, my listings may not be what you are looking for. I am always mote than happy to combine postage for multiple items where possible, this can often lead to a substantial reduction. Thank you for taking the time to read this, vanye90.
