Hello and Welcome to the Textile Trunk! A Wonderful chintz, SO RARE and beautiful! This piece is an antique French curtain panel, dating to circa 1850-60.
This piece was likely once a panel in a larger curtain. The lovely tailing rosebud floral design was both roller and hand block printed! Lovely antique tones of blue-green (mostly green) and pink on a pattern gray stripe and beige ground.There are little metal hooks for hanging the curtain at the top. Such a stunning piece of textile history, perfect for use as is, decorative pillows, curtains, etc! The chintz fabric is slightly stiff from the glaze, with a wonderful crisp texture.
