Large scrap of vintage Fortuny fabric. This was saved from a bedroom installation that was done many years ago at one of our very luxe older apartment buildings in Dallas, for the wife of a very well-known local Dallas jeweler [additional provenance to purchaser upon request]. Saved for many years by the previous owners and purchased by me from their estate. Guaranteed vintage [my estimate is ca. 1950 - 1980] and guaranteed authentic Fortuny. Not signed on what is left of the selvage but verified as authentic Fortuny by the estate liquidator, who frequently handles vintage Fortuny and check out the pics of the reverse [pics #6 through #8] and my "no questions asked" return policy and know that you won't be disappointed. However, I did have this carefully vetted for you in Dallas and it is authentic and you aren't going to want to give it back.

MORE FORTUNY: I have another [smaller] piece of Fortuny from this same estate that I plan on listing later this week if this piece attracts reasonable buyer interest, so please check my items over the next few days if interested; I'm happy to combine shipping.

SIZE AND USABILITY DISCUSSION: Major portion of the scrap measures 41" x 15" and I measured very conservatively. If you would like to make a pair of pillow fronts out of it, 14" x 14" pillows would be no problem and this is with "crown" type element in the design nicely centered and the two pillow fronts matching. If you wanted to make the largest pillows possible and weren't picky about the designs being centered or matching exactly, you could get a pair of pillow fronts almost 20" x 15" out of it. Please note, these measures and suggestions are for pillow *fronts* only, it would be necessary to cover the backs in something else. As the pics show, t are also three small "poke out" sections aside from the main piece, so you would also get some small extra pieces that could be used to cover picture frames or similar [largest poke-out scrap measures 14" x 9" and again this is measuring conservatively].

CONDITION: No stains, holes, tears [except as obviously shown and in connection with it being a scrap]. No insect damage, pet damage, excessive wear, or fading [it is a scrap that was saved from a major installation and never used for any purpose itself]. No dry rot on very firm pulling. DOES have a musty smell [it was stored away for many years] and IS wrinkled, as shown.

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE: I strive for excellent customer service. In almost every instance, items ship within 48 hours of receipt of cleared payment. I offer a "no questions asked" return policy [buyer responsible for shipping, see details below]. Please review my Feedback Stars and Comments and my Years on eBay Info and buy with confidence.
