Divine French Linen Silk Embroidered Valance
(or Sheet Top?)
Item Number C12905
I love "What is its??", so here we go...This divine piece of antique unbleached (ecru) linen is heavily embroidered, and magnificently so, along the ends and one edge. It is brilliantly scalloped in a cafe-a-let color that defines the edge and just says, "perfect, professional, and elegant". It is the width of a sheet, back in "the day", and embroidered as I've seen some layovers, so this is a option as well. At 22" deep it is not likely a runner or buffet topper. Sooooo, though it may not have first been intended as a valance I believe it would be superb used this way. The silk embroidery is impeccable and heavily padded which makes it look luxurious, even from a distance. The colors are muted but rich jewel tones...not quite pastels. There are few minor age marks, one larger faint one shown below, and two wear spots that could easily be reinforced from the back....too pretty to throw away and destined for many potential uses! Better in person (Imagine!)... Offered in good to excellent condition, as described and as found. c.1890 - 1920 22" X 80"
