Another pair of thesegorgeous drapes from the same chateau salon..............
This is an absolutely stunning pair of large antique French chateau curtains that date from the early 1900s. They were originally hung in a chateau salon with six large French windows. The textile is luxurious Lyons silk with a classical damask design in a soft rose/ salmonpink.The silk is amazing quality that is fluid allowing it to drape ,fall and billow in a stunning display. They have that wonderful silk "rustle" when placed.The damask catches the light beautifully and the drapes are very easy on the eye.The curtains show the correct colouring in the long shots and the close ups ( as per usual must shell out for a better camera!) have come up paler.The damask design is a classical exotic bloom surrounded with acanthus leaf scrolls , fruit and berries.The curtains are lined and the tops are gathered into pleats with some hooks still in place.EACH curtain measuresLength 13 feetBottom width 7 feet 8" Top gathered width 4 feetThe inner and bottom edges of each drapeis trimmed with oyster coloured silk braid with a leaf vine weave.The curtains have not been cleaned but I cannot find any strong marks on the silk. The linings are marked and damagedfrom where they rested against the windows . The linings could be removed , replaced or left just as they are!I can findone water mark on the silk in the bottom right hand corner -see last photograph below but this may lighten with cleaning or could be lost in the folds.There are some fading stripes where the curtains have hung for so many years but they do not detract, all of the shades blend and have aged well together so that the lighter parts do not detract. Fading after at least 1oo years is to be expected!!They are incredibly heavy wonderful quality chateau drapes that weigh 10 kilo. I AM QUOTING BELOW FOR BOTH COURIER FROM THE UK ( WITH A SLIGHT DELAY) OR IMMEDIATE AIRMAIL POSTAGE FROM FRANCE.A stunning array of period silk for any chateau chic maison.
