Antique French Armorial Hanging
Important Grande Chateau Door Portiere , Fireplace or Bedstead Surround
Heavy thick Red Wool Broad cloth , selected for its strength and durability , Armorial 's such as this were much too heavy to apply to silk and would not have survived to be passed down the generations.
Appliqued with Velvet, Silk and Satin. Painted Details to side panels.
Forming a strapwork of scrolling leaves and vines surrounding a huge central Coat Of Arms beneath a Regal Crown.
Dating from late 18th early 19th century
This textile is in an antique condition with general signs of wear commensurate with great age and use.
Nap on velvet's now mostly worn away. Shattering to antique silk on Coat of Arms. Loose missing elements. Small holes ,dust marks and wear to wool ground. Please study photographs.
Not Perfect, however if like me you seek out beautiful textiles with a time worn, faded grandeur that only centuries of age can produce you will love it
