CIRCA 1880-1900,ORNATE TAMBOUR LACE CURTAINS W/TRELLIS DESIGN,ROSES. A wonderful pair of curtains with a lovely trellis design and lovely raised padded florals and leaves. These seem unused and are in very good strong condition, perhaps a couple of tiny openings, as said , they seem unused. One panel measures approx.96 by 55", the other panel 96-97 by 56-58 inches.One outer edge was cut or not finished, the other has the scalloped edge. This is not the front part of curtains but the outer part so not a problem, just turn over and use as the most important part of the curtains are at the front. the tops have never been turned over which make me think these were never used.A beautiful design on these.,even more beautiful than pictures. It is rare to find curtains that are in such good strong condition.
