The fabric this is a painted on has the wonderful feeling of vellum , and I believe it's either a fabric based paper, or perhaps a heavy silk?? It's really very difficult for me to say what the base of this is! It's rolled on to a wooden dowel One end of this down has the remains of what was the rolling. Mechanism it's metal, with darkened patina!
This textile has some tears and there are small holes around the edges. Which are surrounded by rust, so perhaps it was even used at some point as a wall hanging!This charming textile measures 54 inches wide by 89 inches long.
