Rare and unusual early 18th Century stumpwork / embroidery valance. Probably from a bed canopy, approx 1860mm long X 265mm wide. Loral decoration in what appears to be silk thread on linen background.
Think this is probably European, maybe Spanish. Ondition as shown in photos, a bit tatty and worn but all the main structure is good and the embroidery sound but please view photos for details. These dont survive well in any condition so quite a rare piece. Owned this for over 20 years and not put it up for sale before now.
