This is a fragment of 18th century lampas silk satin. Pale cream with baskets of pink and blue flowers. Selvedge to one vertical side. There is a small stapled card label. This came from the archive of the Hamot brothers, a Parisian textile firm. Their vast archive was sold in the 1990s when the firm closed after the death of the last brother.
There is one printed number stamp on the reverse side, and four additional G.R.H. stamps to each corner. Colours on reverse side are beautifully bright and decorative. The correct side is a little dusty and discoloured, but in general good condition.
