ANTIQUE FRENCH FABRIC Wonderful antique French textile early 1900s small scale design gladiators An authentic textile would look good framed or for a small pillow. size 29" long x 32" wide I WILL ALWAYS COMBINE SHIPPING AND REFUND ANY OVERCHARGES All my fabrics have been washed and pressed and are ready to use. There may well be the odd mark here and there,and a small pin hole as they all have had a previous life. I will point out any major problems Merci Bien Denise
