Superb 19th C. French religious hand embroidered scalloped edge tulle antependium alter textile . A hand made confection consisting of embroidered tulle with gold metallic thread / wire grape, vine leaf, wheat ears , floral and foliage motifs. The panel is lined with a winter white fabric with a narrow lace trim and serge heading. The textile is in overall good condition but please note that the tulle has foxing marks all over, there are loose gold threads here and there , the lining and heading has stains and age related marks . I can not see any holes or tears. This decorative panel would make a very pretty pelmet / cantonniere. Dimensions : 84 1/2 inches long 13 3/4 inches high
