Spitalfields Blue Silk
c 1810

Beautiful. The current photos show only one end of the stole. The other is just the same.

Description

Of dark blue twill weave silk, the end borders with three bands of flowers, the top with leafy tendrils supporting yellow and red and terracotta, pink and ivory blooms, the second with deep pink hydrangeas and the lower with terracotta, pink and ivory stylised flowers amongst yellow plrimroses, all deep in foliage, the selvedges with stripes of maroon, ivory, yelow, black and brown. silk fringe.

25 x 8ft 2 in in; 63 x 2.45m

Condition

Very good. There are quite a few pin prick holes and slightly larger holes, mainly to one end on the plain blue silk, which you can see when held to the light.  There are two minute nicks to one border. No stains for once.
