LOT of two antique Chamba Rumal with double-sided embroidery from Himachal Pradesh.
Delicately embroidered Silk Base Cloth Squares with jewel-like colors of silk embroidery
A) Figures of Lord Krishna with Radha & Mira and birds.
B) Figures of Lord Krishna at the centre with Gopis dancing around in a circle of Raas Leela wiht Krishna's avatar dancing with each of the Gopis. Also features Tulsi plants.
Both have graceful floral motifs & tendrils in the borders.
The embroidery is so expertly done that it is not possible to discern the front from the back. The only clue to this is the stitched hem at the edges of the square.
One has stains but otherwise both are in very good condition.
Very fine base cloth on both.
Dainty shades of silk thread used for the embroidery.
Estimated to be from the very early 1900s
Will look amazing on the wall framed between two glass panels!
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
