An almost matching, Theorem long length, but what is it?

This very long piece is also Theorem, just like the work bag and cuffs shown next to it in Poppies Cottage.

I am not going to repeat all of the references and description, so please do read the other sale information.

This long length, completely finished as a piece, is far too similar to the bag and matching cuffs to be of a later date. This piece does have small design differences; with red, yellow and blue flowers with green leaves. As they all came together I am reasonably sure they have the same dating.

However, I think that common sense tell us that this long length was altered, possibly in the early Victorian years.

The length is all hand sewn, with a non-piped, silk edge in vibrant green. A far more Victorian colour! It is also fully lined in a green fabric with a distinct sheen. Probably glazed cotton I think. Again, very much of Victorian style.

Was it once a sash? I cannot believe that a Theorem textile so closely matching a lady's bag and cuffs would have been destined for a furnishing purpose. I feel sure it would once have been a ladies accessory. But the squared ends show that it is no longer a sash.

In excellent overall condition, with a rare and beautiful design, I think it can be whatever you want it to be! Hence the separate sale. Obviously if you want the whole set, just let me know and I will adjust the shipping price for you.

References as in the previous description.

The size is 67" long and width approximately 4.75".

  • CONDITION:

    This long length is in very good antique condition, apart from the mild discolouration and age spots as described for the work bag & cuffs set. Please read the other description to be sure.

    No damage at all. The velvet soft and supple.
