Large Old French Printed Cotton Archive Panel (one)


A very beautiful, rare, reclaimed old French printed cotton panel that is of a very good length, this is actually a curtain panel.  Perfect to style within a still life, to use within project work or to fold away in your own personal archive. These larger pieces are hard to find these days.

SIZE:  Width - 116cm selvedge to selvedge   Length - 205cm
PERFECTLY IMPERFECT: There's one hole that is 28cm up from the bottom this would darn well. There's a little weakness here and there where the warp has started to separate in areas, nothing major, can only be really seen when held to the light. This fabric has been laundered twice to check its structure and its appearance is good. There are two panels that have been added on to the length of the panel, make do and mend and its best.  There are three holes to the very edge of the fabric which could be cut away and re-hemmed, one sits almost on the top left corner. I could have cut it down but wanted to leave the fabric and curtain tape in its original found condition. The original curtain tape is still attached to the top.
FABRIC: Gentle Textured Cotton.
AGE:  Over 110 years old

Laundered and ready to use.
