Lazy blogging? Perhaps? I just wanted to post these Victorian upholstery fringes from the collections held at Hawke’s Bay Museum & Art Gallery.
Mostly because of their vibrant colour. They came into the collection decades ago and have been stored away from light thus preserving their colour. For years before that they were in an furnishing store that had acquired them new.
To me they are wonderful treasured examples of the upholsterer’s art and show just how good with colour the Victorians really were.
