Late 19th century Ottoman embroidery on honey-colored satin silk, with linen backing. Rare, elaborately worked, and very gorgeous. Either a large wrapping cloth, or a coverlet. An amazing old piece, fabulous for display.
Excellent condition. Not laundered. A few discolorations, some areas of missing fringe, a small hole in back (last photo) that comes through a bit to the front, and some tiny holes along the side, possibly from being displayed on a wall.
Size: approximately 64 x 66 inches, not including fringe.
Weight: just under 3 lbs.
Photos taken in indirect, bright afternoon light. The light reflected off the satin, so difficult to precisely capture the silk color in the photos. Last photo is very close.
