Footnote: Broderie Perse is French for "Persian Embroidery", a technique where fabric such as birds and flowers are cut-out and appliqued onto another fabric to create a design. This technique was traditionally worked in Chintz fabrics and gained its height of popularity in the United states in the late 18th-early 19th century and earlier in Europe during the 17th century. Broderie Perse likely made its way from India where much of the chintz fabric was printed.


Wear commensurate with age and use. Scattered stains and discoloration throughout, otherwise very good condition.
