Antique Asian Silver Thread Zardozi Embroidered Panel
Embroidered in India and dating from the late 180O’s, a very fine cream silk zardozi work table runner.
An excellent example of zardozi work including metal thread covers silks which have been couched down to create the floral and foliage motifs which run around the border of this runner.
Coiled silver threads Jae been stitched onto raised stumpwork motifs which all gives a rich, glittering three dimensional effect.
In excellent antique condition with a couple of small wax(?) marks and a scattering of tiny marks to the center area, hardly discernable. There are no holes or tears. The panel is backed in a loose weave muslin.
