Stunning and really unusual.
of cotton, the pinky beige ground with a central panel printed with clumps of poppies, iris, cow parsley and other flowers in shades of pale pink and blue and aubergine, with butterflies and small Chinese inspired clouds, the deep lower border on a rich red ground with a central peacock flanked by exotic foliage and alighting birds, above a border with Buddhist endless knots and lillies on a dark blue ground, the hem with intertwined ribbons and stylised flowers, the side borders with alternating endless knots and peonies on a blue ground, the left handside with a bobble fringe, lined with red cotton, 4 ft x 11ft 7 in or 125 cm x 3.55 m drop
Very good. The beigy/pinky ground has some very slight brown marks but this would not show when hung.
Make a wonderful single curtain or hanging.
