Vintage Fortuny Fabrics

This section is dedicated to vintage Fortuny fabrics from various sources.  A mix of vintage
cotton as well as Fortuny's beautiful Silk Velvets.  Both are difficult to obtain, the velvet more
so in my experience, as they were used primarily for clothing which deteriorated more rapidly due
to wear & tear.  Fortuny's clothing  is not covered on this site at this time.  


This wall hanging made from Vintage 1920's Dandolo design, a Rococo style pattern of central bouquets of flowers, framed by garlands.  Piece measures 82" wide by 65" long. Surrounded by 2" border that is one continuous piece. Field is three panels joined and expertly matched. Finished piece is lined and interlined with rod pocket and weighted bottom hem. This piece sold before I could hang it in the showroom, where it now resides waiting for it's new home to be finished January 2007.

Vintage 1920's to 1930's Fortuny Wall Hanging.  Has the look of his Carnavalet design with Crowns, I have not been able to identify the name of this pattern as yet but the border is the same as that on Carnavalet today.
