These curtains look very dramatic. The design is imitating Italian silk velvet woven with a cut and uncut pile and with gold and silver metallic thread, in a late 15th or early 16th century Renaissance design. The lengths have been silk screen printed first with a black ink and three different metallic powders, two shades of gold and one silver using a metallic binder.
The large Renaissance style design silk screen printed with large palmettes on wide undulating stems, surrounded by stylised foliage, gold and silver stamped onto a sage green/grey cotton velvet, which has been hand printed with black outline..
4 curtains @ 8ft 6 in; 2.6 m length; 3ft 9 in; 1.13 cm width
These are gathered into curtains and lined, but could easily be unpicked. Very good condition.
I would like to sell the four curtains together. The price given is for all four.
