Beautiful Hand Embroidered Antique Chinese Silk Wedding? Bed Cover + Fringe
Approx 78"x88" 19th Century 1 family owned exquisite!
We aim to describe items as accurately and honestly as possible. We support the description by providing plenty of good, detailed images to assist buyers. Please remember we deal in vintage, antique items, so inevitably there will be some signs of age, wear and use. We provide a "no quibbles" refund policy. If an item is not as described, please notify us immediately and we will resolve any problems quickly and fairly.
This absolutely stunning antique Chinese silk bed cover is, to my mind, museum quality. It is literally decorated (and virtually all over), with the most wonderful hand embroidery detail. The photographs cannot do it true justice - it is absolutely awesome and I really have struggled to part with it.
I am advised it was especially made for a Victorian wedding - (we think in the mid 19th Century). and we can certainly trace it as far back as 1880. It has been owned by the same family from at least that time and I bought it directly from them.
This exquisite bed cover was displayed for several years as a wall hanging, and so has hooks to the top part, but we have photographed it here (together with the original turquoise coloured under cover + tassels/fringes), on a double bed.
Please take time to view all of our images and do please read the item condition details in order to assist your offerding. Postage is via secure courier service only, please see details, thank you for looking
