This listing is for three pairs of amazing antique 19th Century French Empire Silk Curtains, all lined and interlined with silk braid edging which we collected today from a beautiful Georgian House in a quiet street in the middle of Pimlico, London.


Pair 1- A pair of pencil pleat curtains and would fit a window to a width of 61 ins or 156 cms with a drop of 101 ins or 257 cms and is priced at £495 (see pictures 1-6 and 16-20) - SOLD

Pair 2 - A pair of pencil pleat curtains and would fit a window to a width of 57 ins or 145 cms with a drop of 101 ins or 257 cms and is priced at £480 (see pictures 7-11 and 21-25)

Pair 3 - A very long interlined pair of curtains with rings at the top meant for a pole and would fit a window/door to a width of 62 ins or 157cms with a drop of 154 ins or 390 cms and is priced at £525 (see pictures 12-15). This pair comes with a pelmet.


CONDITION

Pair 1 - The fabric of this pair is in very good overall condition although there are rips and frays of the silk, mainly horizontal ones and not surprising for curtains over 120 years old. The linings for this pair have obviously been replaced at some stage in their lifetime as they are in good condition apart from the one water stain at the bottom of one curtain but with no corresponding stain to the fabric of the curtains.

Pair 2 -  The fabric of this pair is again in very good overall condition although there is noticeable fading to one curtain and a considerable amount of fraying of the silk and includes some damage to the silk on the bottom hem of one curtain, all of which can be seen on P9-11. The linings for this pair have obviously been replaced at some stage in their lifetime as they are in very good condition.

Pair 3 - The fabric of this pair is in good overall condition with very little fraying to the leading edges. The lining in this pair has not been changed and can be seen to be quite tired looking, what you might expect for a pair of curtains well over 100 years old.
