Dress Brocade Panel
First quarter 18th c
Beautiful. Imagine the dress!
woven with three different flower sprays emerging from behind fences or a Rococo shell motif, all in clear shades of cerise, pink, aubergine, yellow, black, green and blue, on a fine twill weave ivory ground, 15 x 21 in or 38 x 53 cm
You will see the seam across the top of the silk which measures 2 1/4 or 5 cm deep. There are a few slight marks round the lower edge of the bottom large motif and one spot top right of it.
There are linen threads to the selvedges where the skirt was unpicked. Not a full repeat.
