Diane Thalmann - The home of English and French antique textiles

Diane Thalmann



Norwich, Paisley, Spitalfields and French examples are famous for their beautiful design and colouring. Especially Spitalfields which complimented the white muslin gowns of the early 19th century.

European 18th and 19th century, and beautifully hand worked whitework and the famous and exquisite Dresden work.

Beautiful 18th century dress silks, Broderie de Marseille from France and Provencal printed cotton items.

18th and early 19th century dresses and accessories.

It should be borne in mind that antique textiles are seldom in mint condition. There is nearly always signs of age and use. This is to be expected, and in many cases is desirable. Flaws are part of the character of any antique, but particularly antique textiles, which have been repeatedly used, worn, washed and even altered.

My website is updated regularly, so stop by often, perhaps you may find something which will interest you.

Further information, detailed description and condition reports can be supplied on any piece of interest. Just contact me.
