Gorgeous high end decorator lustrous silk upholstery featuring amazing large scale embroidered "medallions". This overall piece measures a generous 3 yards x 53" wide with 11 usable golden bronze embroidered medallions that have been embroidered in silk and sewn onto the silk ground. Medallions measure approx. 15" long x 13" wide. There is about a 15" repeat between the center medallions and approx 17" between the width medallions.
There are 11 medallions for you to create with by cutting them and centering centering on a pillow or chair back. The ground is a tightly woven shantung type of silk and is crisp hand with lots of structure. There are some random slub areas.
The weft threads are thicker/heavier and are the bronzy-coppery-golden shade. The warp threads are thinner and are a black. I am happy to send you a free swatch. Photo #3 shows the reverse side of a medallion. This silk is lustrous, elegant and no doubt was expensive when purchased. The amazingly detailed embroidered medallions are perfect for French Revival, Hollywood Regency or anything that needs elegance.
