COLOR: Paris Salmon-Peach-Pink Silk, Salmon-Peach-Pink Silk Embroidery, Paler Salmon-Peach-Pink Silk Lining. That French color of Salmon Peachy Pink that defies description. Silvery Gold Metallic embroidery.


Exquisite detail! So much time and skill went into the embroidery. Silk and Silvery Gold Metallic embroidered Floral motif. This is probably a one of a kind. To me the border Flowers look like BEES! You will be amazed when you get this in your hands. The hand embroidery is done on Linen. I have already spent hours just staring at the details. Although from a distance and at first glance everything looks so perfect and matched, closer inspection reveals that each of the elements is unique with subtle differences in each petal and leaf. This was all embroidered by hand. I just cannot stress enough how magnificent this work is.

LINEN embroidered panel is done in one continuous section, then folded in half and joined at side to form the bottom of the Lingerie Bag.

Top of Lingerie Bag is heavy woven Silk and is HAND SEWN to the Embroidered Panel.

Hand Crocheted Silk Rings. 8 rings. I added an NEW Satin Ribbon as a Drawstring

Interior Lined with Pale lighter weight Silk



CONDITION:

EXCELLENT From NO SMOKING estate.. No holes, stains, tears or weak fabric components. No repairs (with exception of my adding the Satin Ribbon Drawstring and having to reattach a couple of the Silk Crocheted Rings). Just an amazing Textile. Museum quality. One of my favorite places is the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C. This belongs in a museum- it is exquisite..

Would be a darling gift for the Bride to Be or for anyone who appreciates antique textiles. Perfect for your Paris Apartment. You could easily transform this into a Boudoir Pillow.
