Spitalfields Salmon Brocade

Lovely shade. A Skirt length. One full repeat.

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


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



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.
