Gorgeous and so rare to find, 19thc French silk tafetta in a large scale plaid, circa 1850's. Beautiful black red and cream combination. One of 2 variations I sourced from a former French costume maker & collector.
In really amazing condition for it's age. Appears overall well maintained and strong.I will also be listing a black, white & gray variation as well. The gray one still retains it's original tag (photo 6 for reference).
Perfect for historical projects; clothing, bodices and an abundance of unique period projects; home pieces, patchwork, restoration etc.. Excellent added to a collection of period textiles as well. Measures 33 1/2 wide by 1 yard long I can keep your length selected uncut. I sell antique and vintage fabric. Each textile is different; some possibly used, some unused.I will give you my best assessment. I do not always launder them nor do I know all their history, how they have been stored over time etc..
I have a 30+ year long & extensive knowledge of textiles and gauge age ranges; fiber content etc.. To the best of my ability. As always please view all photos, dimensions etc.. As they are part of the description. Please keep in mind that I provide the best photos possible but monitors do vary.
If my eyes should miss a small flaw, please know it is not intentional. Combined invoices are rarely accurate.
