AN INTERESTING AND RARE COLLECTION COMPRISING SILK VELVET AND THREE EMBROIDERIES. ENGLISH 1680-1700

This generous square of rich wine red silk velvet is beautiful. It dates to the late 17th early 18th century.

It is complemented by three intricate embroidered "slips" from the same period. These were originally on bed curtains. Embroideries that would have covered the whole curtain. Stitched on one by one.

These three examples are beautifully worked, and the colours fresh. All in natural plant based shades.

The velvet has occasional pin holes, but it is really good for the age.

The "slips are in excellent condition (mounted on their original linen).

Measurements: The velvet 23 1/2" x 28

The slips are 8" long, 5", and 3 1/2"

The slips could be mounted either on antique cream linen or dark material-

Price: for all the pieces together USD $350.- Or sold separately, please enquire.
