This is a magnificent pair of antique French chateau curtains that date from the 1880s.They are a superb heavyweight weave of wool and linen with quite a lot of gold wirework thread within the weave that catches the light beautifully.The background is strong rich black whilst the design is woven in rich buffs, burgundy, aqua green, russet and pale blue with the gold wire thread adding a regal touch.The design carries scrolled and curled foliage with beautiful blooms, berries and wild fruits.The curtains are lined with light coloured cotton which is all intact but a little marked commensurate with age and use. The tapestry weave is all in wonderful condition with just a little rubbing along the bottom edge where they have hung.There are no holes or repairs and the textile is a heavyweight weave but still fluid that allows the curtains to fall and billow beautifully. Each curtain measures : Length8 feet 4"(254cms) Width 4 feet 2" (127cms)There is curtain tape added along each curtain top edge making them ready to hang.The original passementerie trim runs along each long inner side and across the bottom edges. It is worn in places commensurate with age and there are some missing bobbles but it does not detract. There are a couple of places where it needs to be re-attached.A superb pair of genuine period drapes perfect for any vieille maison- heavyweight and would certainly keep out the Winter cold.
