19th c Antique French Silk Metallic Embroidered TABLE Cover QUILT French Chateau
19th c Antique French Silk Metallic Embroidered TABLE Cover QUILT French Chateau. Such an amazing piece of the finest handwork of the gilded age. A very rare to find treasure, outside of a museum. This beautiful piece is completely handmade of fine, champagne silk, and exquisite hand embroidery. It is covered in a trellis of darkened gold metallic braided thread embroidery that covers the ground. There are five large bouquets of flowers overflowing intricate metallic cornucopias. The embroidery is done in a painterly fashion, finely intermixing the tones and colors for depth and realism. There are large, ruffled parrot tulips, iris and lily. The edge is metallic rope embroidery. Measures 58″ x 58″. Suitable for an entry table, settee or end of a bed. Very good condition for the age of this incredible piece. There is very light to medium surface wear on the silk champagne background, there are a couple of tiny spots, three small repairs on the corner binding, there are a couple spots of binding wear. Under the binding is a more recently attached seam binding. This would lend itself well to placing lace or gold bullion fringes. The silk on the back has not fared as well as the front, showing more wear, tears, a few repairs, and some spotting and faint tanning. This piece was originally part of the J Heinz Corporation Archives. It was donated to fund the childrens education of a loyal employee that passed unexpectedly. An incredible, one of kind piece for the french chateau, the collector, or a museum. See my other listings. For more great items! Add to Favorite Sellers. We like to do business the old fashion way.
