Amazing Tropical Birds/Petrol Blue Velvet curtains W326 D282



This listing is for the last of two pairs of absolutely amazing and unusual short pile velvet curtains we have ever accepted from clients for sale, being made with two completely different fabric designs put together to form a very unusual and striking pair of pencil pleated and interlined curtains in extremely good and clean condition.

The curtains have been sent down to us from a very large old house in the far North East of England. The tropical birds design, which forms the larger part of each curtain, is inspired by an Ian Sanderson archive print from the 1930's called 'Poppinjay' and currently available at approx £145 per metre) and the other fabric is petrol blue short pile velvet.

The pair of curtains will fit a track/pole up to an approximate maximum of width of 128 ins / 326 cms and their drop is 111 ins / 282 cms. The ungathered width of the tropical birds fabric is 76 ins / 192 cms and the velvet width is 52 ins /134 cms

NB - Please note the pencil pleat headers have been tied but NOT cut so the curtains could be made to fit a wider window by loosening the gathered pleats. Alternatively of course you could split these curtains into two pairs which is why we have given you the ungathered widths of the two different fabrics.
