Vintage French Feather Bed Tick

  • £155.00
Tax included.

A large vintage French bed tick filled with feathers, rare and very difficult to find, especially in such great condition. It comes in traditional old wide navy blue and cream coloured ticking stripes as well as narrow stripes in between the wide cream and navy ones.

Tick mattresses, also known as bed ticks were traditionally referred to as 'bed' in Europe and were stacked on top of one another, often but not always, on top of a bedframe. Made using strong, stiff, tightly woven material, these mattresses were stuffed with materials such as feathers, down, straw or wool and other widely available materials typical of each region. 

Today, these are highly desirable decorative pieces that can be placed over a duvet for warmth, folded and used as a floor or bench cushion or stckaed over a metal bedframe for indoor or outdoor seating. 

Very well constructed, these traditional French ticks are hard to find, especially in such wonderful condition for a vintage fabric piece. 


In very good condition.

Size: 130cm x 160cm.


Please be advised that all items in our Vintage and Collected Collection are second-hand pieces which means that they may have had significant previous use. Marks, stains, bumps, dents and wear that are cosmetic are part of the nature of vintage pieces and are therefore not recognised as defects. Only items where the function of the piece is impacted will be considered damaged. All cosmetic marks and signs of wear are part of the natural character of vintage pieces. If you are not comfortable with used or worn pieces our standard collection may be more appealing.
