Italian Baroque Raspberry and Ochre Silk Damask Runner, 16th Century

On hold

A 16th century Italian, probably Lucca, length of raspberry and ochre silk lampas made into a table runner. Woven with a curvilinear lattice of stylized acanthus leaves and flowers enclosing two-handled vases containing bouquets of flowers and crowns. Edged with an 18th century metallic galon/trim with a meandering stylized ribbon interspersed with flowers, back with a matching raspberry colored cotton lining.

Condition: This piece is comprised of three pieces, quite common since this fabric more than likely came from a dress. Shown what looks like a run but it’s actually the ground silk weave. What you’re seeing is some of the silk weft missing but you still have the silk ground, not an imperfection simply age. There are two-dime size black spots. The lighter coloring on the metallic galon/trim comes from being folded, the parts are lighter from not being exposed to air which tarnishes metal.

"The Renaissance (French for "rebirth"), was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th through the 17th century, beginning in Italy in the late Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe. This “rebirth” is why you’ll see so much ornamentation using plant life and flowers, symbols for rebirth. "
