C.1900's, EXQUISITE LADIES BELLE EPOQUE ERA TAMBOUR LACE PEIGNOIR,COAT . Simply stunning! This might have been a elaborate peignoir but it is also perfect for a wedding.A lavish design on the coat with ornate Tambour lace work, double large collar and a long full train at the back.The pictures make the item appear darker, the actual color is light cream.The lace in that time would have been dipped in tea infusions as they did not use dyes, so if one wanted the item white for a wedding one would just soak in hot water and loose detergent, Persil, Ariel etc.Any information needed, you can always contact me.
CIRCA 1900's,LOVELY LONG PAIR OF 128-130" TAMBOUR LACE CURTAINS. Quite a beautiful pair of long Tambour Lace curtains with a ornate design. Early curtains are always so rare to find and it is quite unusual to find such a good length and width. Measuring approx. 128-130" long by 45-46" for each panel. These seem almost unused .They had been stored in a large trunk for many years. The curtains have now been laundered and are strong and in very good condition.We also have another two sets if a customer desires more curtains.It is certainly very rare to find three matching pairs.
