Antique silk tapestry late 1800s, armchair sample,

Antique silk tapestry late 1800s, armchair sample,


Truly incredible and very rare unused, turn of the 19th century, silk tapisserie samples made by M. Leclerc, Maitre Tapissier of Tours.

This piece has a wonderful hand sewn echantillon sales sample tag still attached at the back which marks the reference number for the style of design.

The underside of these pieces are brighter (silk is not faded) and often even more beautiful than the 'right' side.

I have framed two of these pieces for my home and they look really beautiful.

This piece was part of a collection owned by a very famous Interior designer who favours decorating with textiles, her work has featured in many celebrated interiors books such as 'Textile Style: Decorating with Antique and Exotic Fabrics' and 'Provence Interiors'.

This piece, in good antique condition is a luxury textile collectors dream and it is in good enough condition to be used for sewing projects as it is perfectly intact. Would be great for textile projects, dolls clothing, upholstery, cushions etc

This fabric measures 57cm x 66cm

This gorgeous textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition with light storage dust ( can be hand washed and hung to dry ~) . It's ideal only for someone looking for a genuinely aged, timeworn textile work of art!

Please note that if you wish to purchase several of these tapestry pieces then it would be advised to contact me in advance so that I can give you a clearer shipping price - the Etsy shipping calculator is not terribly flexible.
