What an incredible find!!! So rare, so wonderful antique 1910-20's era silk textile fresh from an important estate. The ultimate in old French passementerie! An exquisite piece, 14" by 15"- sized perfectly to make an accent pillow. This piece matches the wonderful cornice piece listed her at Emmie's. I'm quite sure that these pieces are French because nobody else could quite achieve this look of meticulous, exquisite elegance. A textile specialist friend thinks they may be early Porthault. Maybe Callot Soeurs? Or one of the other great Paris design houses. This is textile design and craftsmanship at its best. Embroidery, applique and ribbonwork on pink and gray silk. Exquisite, meticulous finishing touches. Absolutely top quality. The pink section is overcast with a fine French tulle. Piece is backed with creamy white cotton or linen, attached with hidden hand stitching. This piece measures 14" x 15". Excellent condition. Just a round damp stain on the white cotton backing.
