2 Antique Curtain Valances French Silk Brocade19th Century Victorian Fringed :
This sale is for a pair (2) of matching curtain valances from the early 19th century (1880's). Each valance measures app. 48" wide across the top of the valance by app. 14 1/4 long including the fringe. The fringe is about 1 1/2" long. I believe the fabric background is some type of linen cloth with a rich silk brocade french floral design pattern overlay (not sure). The color of the valances is a beautiful emerald green brocade with a lighter shade background. Both curtain valances have a scalloped bottom.These belonged to my grandmother who came to this country in the late 1800's so I am not sure of the exact age. The valances are in excellent condition with no stains or marks. There is a slight 3/4" tear near the bottom edge of one of the valances just above the fringe. These have been packed away for many years. It is rather hard to find 2 matching curtain valances.These wouldbe a beautiful addition to any antique, vintage, victorianor french themed windows or display area. They may have also been used as piano valances but I am not sure.Good luck and thank you for offerding.
