A WONDERFUL PELMET OF TOILE DE JOUY WITH A MARITIME THEME. FRENCH ca.1785

This is a delightful pelmet with a maritime theme, and most certainly originates from the famous Jouy factory near Versailles, France. The quality and designing are superb, with a great deal of detail.

It is in a rich madder red, and prettily trimmed with original pale blue silk along the edges.

It is lightly quilted throughout, and has a backing of cream linen. I have rarely seen a toile of such richness of colour and design - small interesting details too numerous to mention. However, the main theme is large and small fishing boats being very busy!

The condition is excellent. I can find no faults.

Measurements: 70" x 11" at widest point.

Price: SOLD
