From our Indian Subcontinent Collection, a beautiful vintage Indian silk sari executed in a rich and lively multi-colored palette. The central panel uses purple and red silks along with gold thread woven into elaborate floral and geometric designs, and the borders use blue and green silks along with gold thread as well.

Size and Condition: This is a tremendous piece measuring 196 inches (16 1/3 feet) long, and 43 1/2 inches (3 1/2 feet) wide. Due to its size it is rather cumbersome to photograph, and so the photos are showing the piece folded and at only a fraction of its actual size. But the sections photographed are fully representative of the entire design. Condition is excellent with some slight expected soiling here and there, along with some thread pulls commensurate with age and use.
