PLEASE NOTE: ALL MY ITEMS ARE ORIGINAL, VINTAGE AND GENUINE. THEY ARE NOT REPRODUCTIONS.
DESCRIPTION: This absolutely gorgeous, unusual, original, vintage length of STRIPED SILK material which is from my personal British family collection, dates back to the 1930's/40's. It bears its original cardboard LABEL, issued by the shop KENDAL MILNE & CO. SILK DEPT.( of Manchester ), where it was originally purchased. I removed the label which was attached by thread to the material, to check it out as it had never been unwrapped before, and also for photographic purposes. I have not attempted to re-thread the label as it has already created as few pin pricks where positioned. ( SEE LAST PHOTO). The fabric has literally remained in a linen cupboard, unused, for all these decades. The soft " floaty" and very tactile material is absolutely beautiful and could be used for both clothing or upholstery purposes. The fabric is striped lengthwise on the warp of the material. The colours are lovely pastel shades of dark rose pink, cream, eau de nil, grey/blue and light brown. Each length of the material has selvedged edges which are intact The fabric measures approx. max. 1.75 yards in length x approx. 36 " in width. The material weighs 129g. Any accessories used to display this item, such as the antique table etc. are not included in the sale.
CONDITION: BEAUTIFUL, UNUSED LENGTH OF SILK MATERIAL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. No holes, no rips, no tears, no stains that I am aware of. As mentioned, originally, the label was threaded through the material when folded. Undoing the thread, revealed a few pin pricks which are not damage as such but present nonetheless and mentionable. As the material has been stored, there are naturally the original folds and creases and it would possibly benefit from laundering to restore its freshness. I have not attempted to iron it.
