Stunning antique French 19th century Cornely crewel embroidered bedspread

I returned from my most recent buying trip to France at the end of May, and I am STILL ploughing my way through the boxes of delights – laundering, inspecting, photographing and listing them. The wonderful brocantes and antique markets proved to be a fabulous hunting ground as usual, and my contacts had stored away boxes of brilliant antique textiles and ephemera for me to delve into! My next trip is fast approaching – this is my last listing before I depart … I will be back with more French treasures on 22nd September.

A huge, very beautiful fine lawn bedspread, smothered in intricate Cornely embroidery. When I find these Cornely panels, bedspreads or curtains in France, they are almost always in bad condition, so I was delighted to find this one - a huge bedspread (265cm x 210cm), finished on all sides with scalloped edgings. Although very grubby when found, it is now freshly laundered and snowy white with no stains. I can spot three or four small holes, and three original mends, which disappear into the intricate scrolling patterns (last images). This could also be used as a large curtain or bed canopy - the fine lawn cotton really shows up the dense embroidery when held up to the light. Very beautiful 19th century French treasure - the ultimate chateau-chic!

PLEASE READ

I sell antique and vintage textiles and ephemera - unique items that have history, and may show signs of this - it is part of their charm. I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life. Please think carefully about bidding if you are looking for a pristine item that is as new. My passion is for beautiful antique textiles and quirky vintage items with a gently faded grandeur. I do not sell "as new" items, so do consider this before deciding to bid.

PAYMENT

Payment to be made within 5 DAYS of auction end please. My items always end on a Sunday evening, so payment must be received by the following Friday evening.

Paypal ONLY for international buyers - no bank transfers.

For UK buyers I accept Paypal (preferred), personal cheques drawn on a UK bank account and uncrossed postal orders. When paying by UK cheque, please note that your item(s) cannot be sent until your cheque has cleared.

All buyers who fail to pay within my 5 day deadline, or who do not contact me to arrange for delayed payment, are automatically added to my blocked buyers list, and will not be able to buy from me again. I also automatically open an ebay case against non-paying buyers on the 6th day after auction end.


SHIPPING

I am happy to ship worldwide, and always combine shipping costs on items that end on the same day. I do NOT hold over payment of items from one week to the next - all items must be paid for within 5 days of auction end.

Parcels that weigh over 2kg. to international destinations will be sent by tracked Global Priority shipping.

My items are carefully packed so they reach you safely, and I charge a small fee for packaging materials – this is included in the shipping cost.

I aim to dispatch parcels to my customers within 48 hours of receiving payment.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!



RETURNS POLICY

Returns are accepted within 14 days, but ONLY if the item has been seriously mis-described, which I try very hard not to do! BUYER pays for return TRACKED shipping. Please note that as I sell unique, antique textiles and ephemera, any item you return MUST be well packed and received in exactly the same condition as sent. Any UK customs duty that I incur in order to retrieve a returned international parcel will be deducted from the refund amount.

If a returned item is found to have been worn, laundered, repaired or damaged in any way, thereby compromising its value, I will only make a partial refund according to the condition. Once I have received the item in return, and have verified its condition, I will refund your original payment and original shipping costs within 3 working days. 

SERVICE

I always try to offer my customers excellent service, and will continue to do so. As I am a one-woman business, and am often away seeking out interesting items to offer you, I am unable to offer a seamless “Amazon-like” service, with dispatch of parcels within 24 hours, and free domestic shipping. I will nevertheless continue to offer the same professional service as before despite the recent changes in eBay policy.

Please do contact me if you have any questions - I am always happy to help.
