The photographs on a gloomy day simply do not do this hand worked embroidery panel justice. Glittering with gold metallic thread on a cream natural linen, the gold thinly beaten tinsel is wrapped around a yellow silk core. All the decorative motifs emanate from the central square tughra symbol and incorporate islamic crescents and flowers and other traditional motifs. Gold lace banded and bordered, heavy with the weight of the metal, this antique textile in is excellent undamaged condition. Dating from the early C20th, I would imagine a Turkish origin and likely a wartime home bringing.Truly beautiful, the textile measures 90cm x 92cm (36" x 36"). Would have been used on special occasions and perhaps part of a bridal dowry.
