Object: Very old hand-painted bedspread
Material: Silk moiré
Estimated Period: Late 800 / early 900
Country of Origin: Italy
Condition: Excellent condition - barely used with minimal signs of aging & wear

This double bedspread represents a bucolic scene with Greek maidens at a spring, angels, roses. Please note the sweetness of their face.
It is hand-painted and with silk fringed hem on three sides.
The bedspread is very antique and it is hard to find another like this one, both for its hand-painted design and for the antiquity and value of the fabric itself.
Fabric of the bedspread is ‘watered silk’, a type of fabric that reproduces the ripples of the water.
The origin of the moiré dates back to Middle Ages where it was very appreciated both for clothing and home furnishing.
Widespread in the days of Louis XIV and during the Baroque period.
Much appreciated by great fashion designers such as Charles Frederick Worth, who designed moiré dresses for the court ladies; while in the 20th century is was mainly used for evening and wedding dresses, especially beautiful for dresses created by Cristian Dior.
Pictures are an integral part of the item description.
Tracked courier.
