Antique large Embroidery Panel from India Pakistan
Please refer to our stock # Misc140 when inquiring.
This elaborate antique embroidery panel is from Gujrat India and would have been used as a dowery quilt. It is backed with soft aged (now muted) cotton fabric, leaving a 4 inch border surrounding the embroidery. The gold and silver metallic threads are also somewhat subdued and blended giving the panel a soft and somewhat muted appearance which is very pleasing. It is rare to find these old textiles from India intact as many of them where cut up into smaller sections and sold to textile collectors long ago. This panel is in good condition and measures 36 inches x 66 inches including the border.
