MM70/Pg5/PoppyFrenchDrapes.         French Antique Gorgeous Silk Poppy color similar to paprika  color drapes with matching two swags and another 2 matching narrow side panels.   Stunning rich color of reddish orange enhanced with the most beautiful French antique ball/silk trimmings-coming from a French Chateau==Poppy/Paprika colour of  silk with fabulous French Drop Ball Wood & Silk Trimmings.

The trimmings are exquisite on this set and very hard to find so many on one set yet being so old.  The French trimmings make a outstanding and rich appearance in this entire set.  Total of two Curtains/panels and lined at the backside in thick antique muslin--which I had done for me personally however, I decided to change my decor. 

The muslin on the backside is strong and when hung they appear classy to adorn any room.  The one panel shown in photo has a fading area from upper to middle on the side and could easily be hidden when they are hung. One panel has some rings still left on and the other panel no rings.  I did not have the swags or narrow side panels lined with muslin--I left the original backings on these and fading is left on the backs of these. .  I added the pepper container for you to see they are no way near red... they are more like a poppy/paprika colour--it very pretty the color & I hope they might match your decor.  The exquisite ball/silk trimmings are in several different colours as shown... gold, off white, peach +.   Due to age they do have a slight odor however if you hung outside in  the breeze it should go away.. Please keep in mind these are very old and remain in their own charming way as shown and most certainly will adorn your window.

Drapes/Pr.Brown/w/Velvettrimmings.   Gorgeous Silk Antique French Pair of Drapes / curtains / panels having stunning velvet on the base..  These are tall being 9 feet each panel and lined on the opposite side.  The velvet shown is gorgeous and very rich in appearance. They remain beautiful for their age circa late 1880's and I had them hanging myself in one of my room however due to redecorating I removed them and now they are waiting for another owner to enjoy and treasure.  One panel remains pleated at upper and the 2nd panel the pleats have been removed as shown.  One appears a bit shorter due to the pleating on one and not the other however measuring each they are the same as shown here in photos.  The colour is similar to a dirty copper penny however with a shine/shine to them being the silk and the velvet has a little gold colour as shown which  is truly outstanding and makes the drapes have a rich classy appearance. 

Measures:  1st panel:  9 ft tall by 42" at upper and 52" wide at base.      Price: 450.

                  2nd panel:  9 ft tall by 52" at upper and 52" wide at base.    

#MM55CupidrapePg5.   Lovely Antique French Drape Panel Curtain in rich red colour with white backgroiund having Ribbons Bows and darling Cupids with Garland surrounding the entire panel. Please see photos as the very bottom is not even however you could easily cut it to your size.  The backside someone in the past sewed round circles & secured with nice cotton in which one would add string or ribbon to pull up and then this piece would appear and turn to a scalloped drape.   I do not sew however, I have seen these on windows and I believe this piece was made as such---- one would need string or ribbon to weave through these holes up and down (top to bottom I believe) and the one would pull all the strings/ribbons and the panel would become a beautiful scalloped drape./balloon drape.  Otherwise one could easily use this piece for so many projects or for lining drawers etc.

It is cut crooked at base and it goes from 10 feet 8 inches tall and then 10 feet tall where it was cut..  Due to age it does have stains.. I showed some in many photos here for viewing. The fabric is lovely and soft to the touch and could be washed gently as its a soft cotton.

 The upper width is 44 inches wide but the center is 48" wide and base also.  .  There are sets of holes surrounding the entire piece...2.5- 3 sets/prs.   of holes going across each row and going upward the entire panel.   I do hope I explained this well as its a odd piece however very beautiful in appearance.  If you prefer also to use as this is--one could also add red ribbon to each hole making each ribbon into a small bow... this would fill in the holes to become your colour of ribbon you choose to use... and you would have ribbons all over.... (Just another idea of mine)

And/or, one could use it as it is and add another red or white panel behind it then one would see through the holes another colour you choose to place behind it. (Just an idea)
