Antique French Valance Bed Pelmet & Passementerie Silk Moiré

An antique French silk moiré ivory, valance or bed pelmet with bouillon fringe Circa 1890. Exquisite sage green silk with pale gold, ivory, pale pinks, and deep rose floral accents. The plush thick tassels accent the bottom edge of the panel. Small hand stitches are visible at the ends of panel and it is lined in a fine cream silk or cotton fabric.

Many picture have been taken of this piece to try and capture the color. One picture shows the pelmet against a blue and white platter which will hopefully show that the color is more sage green and not a blue green. The sheen from the silk moire makes capturing the color a bit difficult. The last two pictures are more true to the color.
