Very Long Antique 'Shabby Chic' Silk Curtains W168 D317


Sold out


This listing is for something quite special, a pair of really very VERY old antique silk pinch pleated and interlined curtains which go back to the late 1890's and are in a very delicate condition to put it mildly! We've seen these curtains hanging and they looked extraordinary but on closer examination they are barely holding themselves together!!

However we know there are clients who are looking for very old curtains like this which is why we took them in and agreed to find them a new home!!

The silk is soft and luscious although there are cuts and holes as you will see from the pictures.

The gathered top width of each curtain is 33 ins or 84 cms

The drop of each curtain is 125 ins or 317 cms

These curtains will therefore fit a window/door up to an approximate maximum of 66 ins / 168 cms by 125 ins / 317 cms


Please note (buying pre-loved curtains means) there may be some small/superficial marks which you may notice when you take the curtains out of their packaging but once hung no-one, even you, will ever notice! If we find anything major we always point it out and provide you with one or more pictures of the 'issues'.

Our ratings for these pre-loved curtains are as follows: -

The fabric of this pair of curtains is very old and ,although beautifully soft and look great hanging, there are issues with fraying, cuts and all as a result of their great age. However there are no stains or water marks - Rating 5/10 (I'm feeling the love for these but Craig on Strictly would probably give them a 1!!)

The leading edges of the curtains are displaying the results of great age and constant pulling - Rating 4/10

The linings are in awful condition with rips, frays and sun damage! - Rating 2/10


The postage cost for these curtains, based on their weight, and including Insurance, is £23.50p. Postage costs are combined if more than one pair of curtains are purchased. If you live abroad please contact us first to get details of additional costing over and above the UK rate applicable which we will invoice you separately and will need to be paid before the curtains are shipped out to you.
