A fine Jacquard woven tapestry door curtain. The Victorian era is known for its eclectic revival, interpretation of historic styles and the introduction of cross-cultural influences from the Middle East and Asia in furniture, fittings and Interior decoration. Victorian design is widely viewed as having indulged in a regrettable excess of ornament. The Arts and Crafts Movement, the Aesthetic Movement, Anglo-Japanese Style and Art Nouveau Style have their beginnings in the late Victorian era. Interior decoration and design of the Victorian era is noted for orderliness and ornamentation.
A house from this period was idealistically neatly divided in rooms, with public and private space carefully separated. The Parlour was the most important room in a home and was the showcase for the home-owners; where guests were entertained. A bare room was considered to be in poor taste, so every surface was filled with objects that reflected the owner's interests and aspirations. The dining room was the second most important room in the house. The sideboard was most often the focal point of the dining room and very ornately decorated.
Fabrics by their nature are flexible, during storage, humidity and temperature may occasionally affect their shape and also cause creasing. To help a tapestry hang better we recommend using a dry iron on a 'Cotton' setting. Lightly iron the tapestry from the centre towards the edges [on the face]. In very extreme cases the Tapestry can be stretched by pulling the panel gently by hand, diagonally.
