Antique Tampan Shipcloth from Sumatra
The single large ship layout suggests that this piece is from from Kalianda
Faded, has distress spots and repairs.
Condition is poor in general.
But genuine shipcloths from Kalianda with unique layouts that are not 'stiff' or on thick base cloth such as this one are impossible to find. It is been put up for sale to lighten the shelves.
70cm x 80 cm
Estimated to be from the early 1800s
