Thisis a magnificentantique French Richelieu portiere curtain worked in fine linen.Such a large and beautifully handworked piece must really have been a labour of love.All hand workedit is decorated thoughout and would sit around a window, a doorway or even behind a behead.The gorgeous central vignette carries two tumbling winged cherubs with ribbon tails and flowers. The vignette is flanked with a delicieux rose and ribbon tied swag below.The whole portiere carries a large checked drawn thread work design with the outer cut work Richelieu entwined.The inner border is a beautiful array of scalloped leaves and flowers.The outer edge is a smaller version of the scalloped leaves. All of the cutwork is hand hemmed with chain stitches.The colour is soft creamy white which is perfectly vintage.The top has a strong hem to attach rings or to slide a pole within for hanging.The linen is a fine weave that would allow a very soft light to flow through.The portieremeasures:Length at outer edges8 feet 5" (256cms)Width at top5 feet 8" (173cms)Depth at centre 2 feet (61cms)I have not laundered this portiere andhave leftit just as I found it. I cannot see any marks or repairs.Perfect for any petite windows in any vieille maison.I have more Richelieu from the same belle maison all worked by the same hand in my other items. There is also a matching pair of petite cherub curtains.
