A Rare Museum Quality Antique French Chateau Valance.
Dating from 19th century
Pale green silk tassels together with fine long chenille caterpillars. Lovely wired silk trim.
Exquisite wired Lyon silk flower garlands / passementerie, entirely made by hand and represent hundreds of hours of a Master craft persons time. The attention to detail is stunning surely a lost art.
Salvaged from a large Chateau in France. I will gradually be listing other salvaged pieces over the coming days.
Antique condition with general signs of wear commensurate with age and use. Over all very good. Wear to bottom edges of pale green silk valance , which cannot be seen unless tassels are lifted up. A couple of missing caterpillars. I will include a couple of spares which I have salvaged so as can be replaced if preferred. Some lifting and separation to wired silk trim.
SIZE: 60" long x 11" reducing to 9" (153 cm x 28 & 23 cm)
