Featured items

I will be participating at The Textile Society's London fair on Sunday 12th October. Do come and look at good quality European, Asian and Worldwide textiles and costumes. We will be at Chelsea Old Town Hall, King's Road, Chelsea SW3 5EE

The huge pattern repeat of this Talwin & Foster, Bromley Hall indigo discharge and copper plate printed cotton is extremely rare.  Added to the fact it has been used for a gentleman's banyan or dressing robe makes it a very desirable item.  A velvet two piece suit from the 1760's and a young man's brocade coat of 1730-40's are also featured. Two bandstring tassels of c 1610 is probably the earliest item I have ever had for sale. It is remarkable that they have survived. Plenty other items so do look in all sections.
