Huge silk tapestry, 235cm x 207cm, in superb condition. Chinese, early 20th century

Machine embroidered in beautiful, bright, jewel like tones. The design/drawing is in gold silk on an ivory ground. The design elements (figures, birds etc) are filled with vertical bands of colour that reach from top to bottom. There is a central band of an unusual rusty pink, then to either side the colours are: Magenta, Dark Turquoise, Royal Blue, Chinese Orange, Light Green/Pistachio, Maroon, Turquoise and purple at the outer edges.

The piece is fringed to three sides and plain on the top edge which suggests, along with the size and the heavy, durable quality of the textile, that it was created as a bedspread. It can certainly be used as one, it comfortably reaches the floor either side of a super king bed. Looks amazing as a wall hanging tapestry or a window/door curtain. A very versatile and attractive piece.

Condition:
Superb, clean and bright throughout. Some minor pulls and loose threads, minimal and has little impact overall.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

By Appointment
Sheffield

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
