Early 20th C Antique Vintage Silk Brocade Wall Hanging. This is a spectacular textile that I rescued from attic storage from a mansion built in Greensboro n c for a cotton merchant, who traveled the world extensively.
The textile has a center seam but the pattern is matched beautifully. There is another barely noticeable seam near the side, that makes me think this was a larger textile cut down to size and repurposed , many many years ago.You can see the perfect hand stitching around the edge where the trim was attached. The trim around the edge is a stiff ethnic metallic trim.
Fabric is backed in a dark sepia cotton canvas that has water stains. Please look closely as there are many splits in the fabric.It should be mounted under glass.
