PLEASE NOTE: ALL MY ITEMS ARE ORIGINAL, VINTAGE AND GENUINE. THEY ARE NOT REPRODUCTIONS.
DESCRIPTION: This very pretty, large, UNUSED, quality length(being sold as one piece only) of original, vintage patterned SILK fabric, which dates back to the 1930's/40's is from my personal British family heritage and as such I know its history. The material is so tactile, soft and "floaty" and so reminiscent of materials from that era. The unusual, very small all-over print is of several types of fruit in pretty pastel shades of blue, green and salmony pink on a creamy-coloured background. NB. THE PHOTOS MAY SHOW THE BACKGROUND TO BE WHITER THAN IT IS IN REALITY. IT IS DEFINITELY A CREAMY COLOUR. The material has literally been stored away for all these decades by one careful owner. Each length of the material has selvedged edges which are intact. It was more than likely originally bought to be used in dressmaking etc., but could easily be used to achieve the modern retro soft furnishing look ie. cushions etc. The fabric measures approx. max. 3 1/3 yards in length x approx. max. 34 1/2 " in width. It weighs 175g. Any accessories, such as the antique table etc. used to display the fabric are not included in the sale.
CONDITION: EXCELLENT UNUSED CONDITION. I have examined the material carefully and can report that there are no tears, no rips, no holes and no stains that I am aware of. Being a vintage item which has remained in its original, unused condition, it naturally displays its original creases and folds. I have not attempted to iron it. Being stored away for all these decades, it would also benefit from being laundered to restore its freshness. This is a truly gorgeous piece of original, vintage silk.
SHIPPING/DELIVERY: Delivery will be by Colissimo, with tracking and on this occasion, insurance. The material will be extremely carefully packaged using quality bubble wrap and cardboard container etc.
