A museum quality silk and metallic thread fragment, expertly sewn to a cotton backing and mounted within a plexiglass frame. The ogival format with enclosed flowering stems and carnations is characteristic of these imperial quality textiles. Related examples can be found in many major museums, including the Topkapi in Istanbul and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The piece dates to circa 1570-1580, and, following the attribution given by the Met to their example, was most probably manufactured in Istanbul. The visible portion of the textile measures 8.25"x 7.75", making this a sizable example. The overall measurement is 11.5" x 11". The piece is visually outstanding. Some expected wear to the threads, primarily those wrapped in metal.
