This sale is for two pieces of rare and unusual antique 18th century church vestment silk.
The silk is brocaded with metallic gold wire, which on the front has patinated to a silvery colour. It would have been quite spectacular when new, as there is a pale turquoise blue silk that has been used as well as the red and cream, unfortunately this has now faded on the front of the silk, but is visible on the back.
Of particular note in the design are the cartouches with birds and stylised acanthus leaves, and the Saint holding a banner in the centre of the Cross shaped piece.
There is some wear to the silk in places (on the straight piece mainly) which is to be expected, I have photographed these areas and they are not significant.
The Cross shaped piece of silk is 21 inches (52.5 cm) at its widest, and is 43 inches (107.5 cm) long. The straight piece is 6.5 inches (16.25 cm) wide and is 41 inches (102.5 cm) long.
The last photo shows the back of the silk.
