More Sheurers and some other pretty textiles

I have a real soft spot for silk/silk & cotton mix damasks and brocades. These are Victorian through to about 1920.

Rare French starch-glazed chintz and lining fabric dating from about 1820-30, block and roller printed.
A wonderful embroidered panel, so deliciously shabby chic on worn indigo blue velvet, perfect for framing.

Two beautiful glazed satin-finish cotton Scheurer samples c.1890 in immaculate conditon, incredlble how new they look, they have been stored really carefully. Amazing...
