Welcome to my world of decorative and affordable antiques - all items are from my own house and need a new home in order to create more space for new arrivals !
Here we have a cushion made from a piece of 17th century style VINTAGE fabric which was very fashionable in the 1920 - 1940ies.
The colours are very bright for the age of the fabric.
I removed the fabric from a genuine 17th century chair which was re-upholstered between 1920 - 1940.
The fabric was cleaned and made it into a cushion.
The fabric is in very good condition. All the damaged pieces I removed before turning it into this lovely cushion.
The cushion measures 42cm x 45cm and weighs circa 650g.
The fabric is very strong and the pattern inco-operates a velvet design on a ,what looks like a, linen background. The gold treats in the design make it look very grand !
The background is a beige colour and the velvet gold with a greenish sheen.
Both sides, back and front are of the same fabric, showing the same condition.
This rich colour and design make it very trendy !
I do ship abroad and send to anywhere in Great Britain, USA or Europe. I prefer pick up in person but if you are interested in having an item shipped, please enquire at least 2 days before the end of the auction and I shall get you a 100% accurate quote. I do not charge for packaging material or my time. You only pay what the post office is charging me.
I am an Antiques enthusiast but I do not claim to be an expert. All items were sourced for my home because I like them. I don't seek to make a profit but will try and recover the original cost to me.
All items may be inspected prior to the end of the auction. We are based in East Hertfordshire near Stansted Airport / Bishop's Stortford. I also exhibit at a small number of local Antiques Fairs within the local area.
The next one will be in Albury ( Village Hall - SG11 2JL ) on Saturday 12th April 2014
All items are described to the best of my knowledge but should you require further details, please let me know. I take great care to record all faults and do not deliberately withhold any information on damage/missing parts. However, should you spot a problem I am not aware of, please do tell me in time so that I can change it in the listing.
I am an honest and straight private individual and will go out of my way to make all transactions a positive experience for both of us. Please be warned, that does not mean I am an easy target for the ever-growing number of ebay low-lifes who target innocent sellers with their dishonest trading and aggressive trading techniques !
Please note, I can not accept returns as I am not a business. On occasions, I will make an exception, if the fault lies with me AND the item is being delivered back in person or the buyer pays for the postage him/herself.
Happy bidding !
