First Half 20th century
Acquired from a museum store.
5 hand woven panels with supplementary weft sewn together and used as tent dividers.
Acquired from a Museum.
300 cm x 135 cm without the fringes. There is a joint at 220cm (so in case you need it to be shorter you could just open up the stitches at that point)
Such an elegant palette and such density of 'desire' motifs is rare. Again, have yet to see another as attractive as this piece!
