    • ~*~Hello and thank you for looking~*~

  This stunning textile is an antique French piquee / quilt from Provence which dates c1805-1810. A wonderful and rare find ~ this stunning Pique uses a remarkable printed fabric on the front. The fabric was indigo resist printed and the red ( taken from the root of the madder plant) was block printed on to the fabric. So, large areas were covered with a resist substance ( usually a wax) and applied to the fabric using intricately hand carved wooden blocks. The fabric was then dyed using natural indigo, so the design was revealed in white ( the undyed cotton) ~ next, hand carved wooden blocks were used to apply the wonderful ruddy red madder tone ~ this quilt is wonderful, and very very large for these textiles. The original backing can be seen if one peeks between the dark blue cotton backing and the top layer. It was originally backed in a very small scale geometric printed cotton, however it was rebacked at some point in the 19th century most likely due to wear. The quilting patterns are stunning , wonderful needlework! A wonderful and rare find ~ ( quilt 141)

MEASUREMENTS:  This lovely quilt measures 86 inches by 84 inches ~

CONDITION: This gorgeous textile is in as found, not freshly laundered condition for collectors. The backing has hand stitched patches in areas. There are gentle and uneven fading marks on each side of this quilt, creating the beautiful timeworn look to this antique textile. There is light storage dust . There are small blotchy slightly more faded spots in the fabrics on the front and back  to be expected with it's age. This quilt is generally in lovely condition for it's age. There are some small holes in the front fabric, however I'm quilt impressed with the condition! *~

I take a great deal of care and pride in describing each textile very accurately. I also use many photographs to show the textiles also as I feel it is very important to see the exact condition, colors, texture, size etc of each textile. If ever you feel that I have missed anything, please contact me immediately as it would have been an oversight, never an intentional omission!~*~ I always post quickly; every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I always combine shipping charges to save my customers money on postage.

Please email me if condition is vital to your purchase and we can discuss condition in detail. When describing my textiles, I use my best judgment, knowledge and experience to estimate their age. I have had many years of research and hands on experience with these wonderful textiles. I describe items as Antique if I estimate the age to be 100 years of age or greater. EBay currently define an antique as dating to 1930 or earlier. I describe items as Vintage, as per the dictionary definition, if I feel the textile has age, or is outdated or old-fashioned, dating from the past. If I use both Antique/Vintage when describing a textile, it is because I feel the textile is most likely 100 years of age or greater, but may fall just short of that date. I often work in collaboration with other colleagues and textile specialists to ascertain the approximate age of my textiles, however ultimately any statement of age is a matter of best judgment only~*~I also use my best professional judgment to ascertain the fiber content of my textiles, using sight and feel and where possible historical information and context to help me to identify plants used in a particular era. However, because my textiles are old, any statement of fiber content is again always only my best professional assessment. ~*~ I feel privileged and honored to bring these textiles to you, I sincerely thank you for your interest ~*~
