Item Details
probably Turkey
2nd half 19th century (1850-1900)
An unusual embroidered hanging of brown satin, worked in tamboured silks and pervasive couched metal thread with extremely fine chain-stitch embroidery making up the large-scale exotic blooms and scale-patterned serpentine vines. Very good condition, with slight overall wear resulting in many tiny "bald spots" within the embroidery layer that can be noticed only on close inspection. 96"x 68".
