Item details

RESERVED FOR GERD PLEASE DO NOT BUY. This is a lovely traditionally hand embroidered Turkish cloth remnant which I think dates from the 19th century Ottoman period.

Made of natural cream linen, it is embroidered with silk and metallic threads in traditional floral and geometric designs in lovely shades of pink, brown, gold and dusty blue. The embroidery is incredibly neat and tight and it is hard to distinguish between the front and the reverse. I believe this remnant would have been part of a towel.

In used vintage condition as you would expect from something of this age. ...the colours are still lovely and vibrant but it does have quite a few little holes, loose threads and a few marks. It also has a musty smell from being stored so could benefit from a good airing.

A lovely traditional piece perfect for someone interested in folk textiles or to use in textile art or simply display in a frame.
