INTRODUCTION

This is an amazing pair of antique hand embroidered velvet interlined curtains, one of two identical pairs available through this listing, which we collected from a client in Bayswater, London and are now very pleased to now be able to offer for sale. These antique curtains used to hang in the main hallway of the Chateau de Courgevaux in Fribourg, Switzerland and were only taken down and stored when the owners moved to London eighteen months ago.

MEASUREMENTS

The ungathered top width of each curtain is 22 ins or 59 cms

The drop of each curtain is 107 ins or 272 cms

These curtains will therefore fit a window/door up to an approximate maximum of 44 ins / 118 cms by 107 ins / 272 cms

There is a embroidered valance which accompanies each pair of curtains and is 53 ins or 135 cms wide.


PLEASE NOTE THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL LONGER SINGLE CURTAIN AVAILABLE, ONCE PART OF A PAIR, WHICH MEASURES 17 INS OR 43 CMS WIDE BY 156 INS OR 396 CMS DROP. PLEASE MESSAGE US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS ADDITIONAL CURTAIN.

CONDITION

These are very old pre-loved curtains which are in remarkable condition for their age. The velvet fabric still looks great and the hand embroidery is mostly in excellent condition.  There are a small number of  tassles/bobbles missing from the leading edge of the curtains, not surprising bearing in mind the age of the curtains, and no doubt the fabric could do with a gentle hoovering, the key word here being 'gentle'.

The embroidered rope is intertwined with very thin gold thread.

The linings are quite tired as can be seen from the various pictures taken, but if required the linings could be changed but frankly no-one will ever see the linings once the curtains are hung. The hallway in which the curtains were hung faced north so did not get a lot of sun and there were shutters on the windows as well so the curtains were not often drawn closed.

These curtains are not suitable for dry cleaning due to their age.

These are really fabulous old pre-loved curtains which still have a lot of life in them for someone who loves the shabby-chic look and has one or more long windows to dress.

All of our curtains are on view at one of our three Divinely Vintage pre-loved curtain showrooms and these curtains are currently at our St Albans showroom.
