CIRCA 1900's, RARE LARGE SILK CHENILLE, METALLIC BASKET W/LOVELY FLORALS.
CIRCA 1900's, RARE LARGE SILK CHENILLE,METALLIC BASKET W/LOVELY FLORALS. In 45 years I don't think I have ever seen such a large piece! The large motif is made with silk Chenille and Metallic embroidery. The design has a wonderful ornate basket overflowing with vines and florals. All of the flowers and leaves have silk shaded embroidery. Probably made in France during the early part of 1900.Measuring approx. 34" deep by approx. 22' or more across .Once it is spread out possibly more inches will be added. This was never used and was on it's original card. We had to remove because the paper had cracked due to age, we unpicked the loose threads that attached the piece to the card. This would be wonderful.. on a gorgeous lace or silk bedspread, framed, large continental pillow etc etc. A wonderful item for the collector. The detailed work on the basket and vines , flowers and leaves is quite superb.
