ITEM: Divine PAIR (2 panels) of curtains, bespoke made to measure for their last home in Laura Ashley's iconic and popular Josette linen slub of yesteryear. I know they have re-introduced many colour ways, but this one has not made a come back, so rare and a magnificent little find! This is their "duck egg & charcoal" colour way - bold, striking and a definite focal/talking point to any room.
I have a roman blind in the same fabric colour way listed in my other items so do take a peek. Most wanted and most coveted and definitely a must have for that shabby cottage chic interior!
Professionally made - not by LA - but the standard of finish is pretty on par - pattern match is fluid. They are part hand finished. Triple pinch pleat header with covered button detailing.
Weighted hemline for improved drape and hang. Interlined for insulation and a much fuller drape. HUGE in size so could easily lend to splitting down to gain several sets of curtains. CONDITION: Offered in good pre-owned condition the with the face fabric retaining its shape wonderfully; the below should be noted for full accuracy of the listing.VERY faint level of fade at the leading edges - more on the inner lip of the curtains, I was not able to get the camera to pick this up at all. Sun streaking on the TOP lining, mainly condensed to the top half of the curtains. Grubby (very) surface dust to the REVERSE header where they have glided too closely to their previous track - please see ALL the pictures BELOW. There are also some pleats - again on the reverse whereby the pink hooks have struggled with the weight so this has made a few stitches come loose. Some yellow (pale) spotting to the inner interlining layer, mainly at the bottom hem level. FABRIC TEXTURE/COLOUR and DESIGN: Medium linen blend slub fabric decorated in most probably one of LA's best - and long running design. Utterly French influenced pattern of swooping and scrolling swirls along with ostentatious floral displays and'pearl ribbon swags' screen printed in true charcoals on a duck egg blue backing. Certainly dripping with French inspired chic and would not look out of place in your very own Chateau de Versailles :! HEADER TYPE: TRIPLE pinch pleat header for a more formal and elegant finished hang to the curtains. The fabric gathers have been set at the time of sewing so the width along the top of the curtains will NOT adjust. Each pleat is finished off with a covered button detailing in solid black which gives the curtains a lovely finish. These can be used on both track and pole (with curtain rings) systems. LINING TYPE: There are 3 layers to the curtains, the face fabric, a woollen mix interlining (middle) and cotton lined on top.
This all totals maximum insulation and provides the curtains with bulk to achieve a more sumptuous hang. A timeless set of curtains that would provide many many more years service.
Measurements each curtain panel laid flat (+/- 2 cm). Width along the hem (un gathered) 391 cm or 154 inches; FIXED across the pleated header to 159 cm or 62.6 inches. Drop 220 cm or 86.6 inches (there is an additional 4 inch hem so could be lengthened still but there may be a crease/dust shadow from the previous hem should you decide to do this).
