Italian Damask Pieces
1650-1700

Not sure what has happened to what was original a long hanging to wrap round a church pilaster. It is now in five beautiful pieces. I feel they would look lovely mounted, when the splits would be less obvious.

Description

All are of green/blue silk tabby ground with yellow, which looks gold,  damask pattern of amoroni, shell motifs, sea dragon tails, grotesque animal heads, with side borders.

A - A central vase with a pair of amorini as handles, the lower part with two dolphin heads and long beaked birds. 10 x 34 in; 26 x 60 cm.            £135

B - A pair of tulips with chequerboard centres amongst swirling foliage and C scrolls.  9 x 34 in  ; 23 x 60 cm.                                                             £ 55

C - A central face with extraordinary headdress and radiating collar, flanked by sea dragon scaly body and foliage. 10 1/2 x 23 in; 17 x 60 cm.       £155

D - Similar to above. 11 x 23 in; 28 x 60 cm.                                         £155

E - A pair of amorini sitting on foliage and holding elongated beak birds, flanking a large flowering plant. 1ft x 2 ft; 30 x 60 cm.                          £155

Condition

All have some horizontal splits. If you cannot see from existing photos, do ask and I can send more.

A - Good condition.

B - One bad repair - horizontal to the right hand side. Needs unpicking and sewing more sympathetically.

C - Two minor darns to the left hand side which could be improved.

D - One small hole and three of darns, one to left hand side of face.

E - Darn lower right hand side which could easily be removed. Few horizontal splits which you should be able to see from the photo.
