Spitalfields Salmon Brocade
1760s

Lovely shade. A Skirt length. One full repeat.

I have two more lengths of similar silk from the skirt of a dress. Both have marks.  I think these lengths have been washed, as they are rather soft. Good for inspiration.

Description

The salmon silk ground woven with a ivory lace meander with sprays of flowers in palest primrose, coaral, pale blue and green, with touches of bronzes and brighter yellow.

38  x 20 in;  97  x 51 cm

 

Condition

The top 3 in; 8 cm has a mark. Otherwise no markings. Possibly washed, because the lengths are very soft, but no colour run. The very edges near the selvedge, which have been turned under are a slightly stronger shade.

Price: £350 | $420 | €410
