Chinese Cut Velvet Furnishing Silk
1860-80s

It is unusual to find sumptous and rich silk velvet furnishing fabric, particularly an unused length. The shot silk colours of bottle green and magenta pink are stunning. It is difficult to photograph. The pink is much more restrained than most of the photos. I would say the colouring would fit well in with a late Victorian interior.
