Rare and exquisite antique piece made from 18th or early 19th century "Lyonnaise" French silk.

We salvaged these remarkable pieces from an old handmade spread that we sourced from France. This is lovely work and each square is unique.

They are antique and showing their age, but still beautiful and strong enough to frame and display.

This one has some bad staining to one side and so is at a price for study or remaking (it would perhaps be possible for a good seamstress to remove the motif and put it on to a different background).

Please contact us for pricing if you would like to buy more than one of these silk motif pieces.

  • Approximately 23 cm by 24 cm (not quite a square).
  • Each of these pieces is unique - the maker used different silk combinations in each one. The variety of silk that has been incorporated suggests that these were perhaps scraps left after clothing was made.
