We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. This is from among the most magnificent panels I own and have collected myself over decades. I'm down-sizing my own collections. Difficult to show in photos with such limitations in size. Paid a lot then, and their description affirms my own research throughout museum collections and reference books.You spend decades devoted to antiques, it's amazing what comes up now and then. I love what I do - all of it! The panel was, in my imagination, going to be worked up as a headboard or hanging for above a bed. Someone else should have this to hang or to create the perfect way for it to shine for another 500 years. Yes, it is at least that old. There are some areas that show a little tatter. I've shown the very worse, and tried to show you every bit of the panel in sections. Hand dyed wool and silk, fine weaving of spectacular craftsmanship. And the subjects presented are superb. It is: 70 long 19 wide c. Nearly 6 feet long, if framed would be fabulous above your bed! One could also cut in center and make 2 sumptuous long down-filled and lushly fringed pillows, but it seems a shame to cut it.
Very good condition for age and type. The photos show it well. It has been a wall-hanging. There is a muslim backing that is probably early to mid-1800s. Tapestry is 500 years or so, give or take.
From all my experience over the years, and I look at every museum's tapestries and study them all - love them, I do believe it is a fragment of a border panel. I can't imagine what a treasure it was originally woven to surround (70 of it, anyway). Watch for more museum quality panels to be listed. I'm un-crating the best of best and listing my entire collection in weeks, months ahead. Should probably take them to Sotheby's or Christies, but we've been internet dealers for 25 years, and direct dealers for even longer.
