A Rare Darshan Dwar Phulkari Bagh
Silk floss embroidery on coarse hand woven cotton.
Darshan Dwars are rarely available for sale as these are used as offerings in Gurudwaras - the temple of the Sikh community. As this community is wealthy, such pieces hardly ever come up for sale adn are treasure by collectors.
This piece goes out as one of the important pieces on offer, as my collection gets trimmed.
Some thread loss. Minor color run in one spot.
Estimated to be from the early-mid 1900s.
