TO VIEW THE PRICE.

This is a rare / unusual Thirma phulkari.

Two factors are noteworthy - the unique diagnol pattern and the use of mutliple colors.

The glossy silk motifs have been rendered in maroon, magenta and very unusual light pink, rare green and even rarer dark-blue (I have not seen dark blue in any other phulkari until now).

Hand spun cotton threads (the slubs are visible in the closeups)

Handwoven white base cloth.

Estimated to be from 1880 - 1920.

Some minor losses to silk thread due to usage can be seen.

Rare.
