Antique Organdy Embroidered Panels Ivory UNFINISHED
Unusual set of 2 organdy panels in nearly sheer ivory. I say unusual because I think they were once curtains. They show the signs of previous stitching and a few tears in the seam areas about 1/4" from the long edge. But they don't match. Heavily hand embroidered in ivory, nearly white silk thread. Before I soaked and laundered them, I stitched the upper and lower raw edges to prevent unravelling. There is some spotting that I thought at first was detergent residue and so I rinsed them a total of 3 times. It is not immediately apparent in the overall appearance of the panels.
These panels were VERY difficult to photograph to say the least because of their nearly sheer quality. Hope the photos will give you some idea of their beautiful designs.
Both panels measure approximately 36x82. If you wish to make them a standard modern size, you may have to use a new organdy fabric for the header and hem. I can see them used for many purposes, not just curtains!
