Luscious all hand spun and woven with gold threads, panel from a vintage Varanasi, Indian wedding sari, circa 60 to 70 years old. I would describe the colors as pigeon blood ruby red with subtle gentian floral scrolls intermingled with the gold thread medallions, which I might add is made of genuine low karat gold metal. This is double backed on cotton and silk with a “raw” silk border and polyester end trims. There are a few threadbare areas but with the silk backing they are difficult to spot, having said this I have noted a couple in the enlargements. IMHO this is a very tasteful piece; rich without being ostentatious. L: 2m/78in and W: 35cm/14in (with border 2.26m/89in and W: 51cm/20in).
