Vintage Velvet Bedspread, Italian, Pre-WWII, 96"l. x 86"w.

This gorgeous cut velvet Italian wedding blanket came to me dirty, with lame, cheap-o fringe sewn on. That would never do! I took a risk and machine washed and dried it. It came out soft, shimmery and clean, fringe intact. I added vintage satin garland trim over the fringe, and now it's fit for Belle's Bordello from Gone with the Wind! This has so many colors in subtle shades that it will go anywhere. As illustrated in the last 2 photos, I use these as wall tapestries, as well. Some of my customers have used them as floor and table coverings, ceiling canopies, and furniture covers. The reverse side is a heavy muslin, and you can machine wash and dry this, but it may dull the sheen of the satin garland trim and tangle the fringe a bit. Spot cleaning and vacuuming work great, too.
