Stunning provencal quilt antique Directory.  Villa Rosemaine
   
Towards 1795/1815

Provence

Very surprising quilt quilted Provence dating from the late eighteenth century. Extremely rare printed cotton on cotton ground of pink daisies on green blades with fingers. It is observed that the yellow is superimposed on the blue almost all the Indian to get this beautiful green plant. Often, the superposition of the yellow on blue is not limited to certain grounds in this case is the opposite! . Perfect symmetry of the two pieces of silk bayadère probably earlier in the eighteenth century. This silk is similar to that of the archives of the Museum of Old Nimes which include local production. Its origin and Nimes Provence seems very likely. The back of the quilt is an Indian reserve tint bottom sweep which unfortunately is discolored in places. Good condition.



Dimensions 200 cm X 270 cm.






Pros: Great

Cool colors that have retained their primer. Composition relatively astonishing. For collector.



Cons:

The quilt is sewn in the center of two widths perfectly symmetrical: it may suggest that it was part of a wall set for canopy. Several rings of discoloration on the back happily, without affecting the quality of Indian silk and the front. Price based.
