Silk Bedcover and Pelmet with C17th English Embroidered Appliqués.
An English bedcover and Pelmet made from a finely yellow striped yellow ochre silk taffeta with old gold braid arabesque elements and late 17th century silk embroidered floral appliqués.
The applied floral motifs have been taken from a much earlier piece, which was most probably damaged, and redesigned and fashioned into this bed set, sometime during 19th century.
In excellent antique condition with no damage or marks that we have found apart from on the reverse of the hens which have a residue of glue which tells us that this may have been stretched onto a frame as a wall hanging .
