Antique 18th century Lyonnaise silk motif – Pattern 4


We salvaged these remarkable pieces from an old handmade spread that we sourced from France.

They are made from 18th or early 19th century “Lyonnaise” French silk – rare and exquisite. 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. Our pricing reflects the condition.

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.
  • A variety of silks have been incorporated, these were perhaps scraps left after clothing was made.
  • Age worn, but these are still beautiful.
