Antique French 1800s hand painted silk fabric esquise

110.00

Truly exquisite and rare artists painted draft - an 'Esquise' in French - for silk textile design which dates to late 1800s.

This has been hand-painted and meticulously crafted by a silk draftsman and this type of artwork is very rarely available for sale.

I happened across a seller at a French antiques fair who used to work as a 'lisseur' for a major silk maker in Lyon and he had acquired a small set of 18th & 19th century 'Esquises' (drafts) for silk designs from Prelle; Rostain & Bral; Mondon; Kachmyr; Peroudier and Besson.

This beautiful piece is in good antique condition, the paper is creased in parts, there are visible draft marks and amendments which add to the charm of this piece
