Rare and unusual format of a Tampan Ship cloth Textile
This is perhaps the only example of a ship cloth rendered in Applique work that I have come across.
Equally beautiful is the printed backing cloth that this piece has been mounted on.
Estimated to be from the early-mid 1900s
Condition is good for its age.
117 X 46 cm
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.
