One Fabulous Italian... coverlet, that is.

Every once in a while I run across a really amazing find.
That's what I want to share with you,
a beautiful antique Italian silk tapestry coverlet.
That I think is from the late 1920's.

Below you can see a handsewn tag that says,
"Made in Italy".

I've used it in my Living Room for the last several years,
but now I've decided it needs to find a wonderful new home.
So I just listed it on Etsy in my Petite Boutique

It's all silk, in creams, melon-umber, dark blue
and the design consists of young women;
 one playing the tambourine
the other playing the mandolin.
(it has a little "gypsy" spirit!)

It's in wonderful condition,
just some "age" wear and slight discoloration.

The light in our bedroom isn't good,
so it's draped over one of my sofas in the living room.

Here you can see it draped over the back.

The fringe is pristine, no matting or tangles.

just sold!
thanks so much

It measures approximately 88 inches by 74 inches,
not including the fringe.

I think it would be beautiful in many settings,
folded at the end of a bed,
on a chaise lounge,
or draped over a baby grand piano!

Just wanted to let you know this is available on Etsy.
Hope you're having a wonderful day.
I'm trying to get a few things accomplished today.

See you tomorrow,
