19th Century Ottoman Silk Embroidered Bedcover with Violets
A silk satin bedcover dating from the second half of the 19th century.
Hand worked Ito an off white silk satin ground with hundreds of violets and foliage motifs. Finished with arabesque designs in the centre of the cover and in each corner.
Backed in a cotton muslin, this panel would work well as a bedcover or as a wall hanging.
In excellent antique condition with some rubs and losses to the edges of the textile and a few historic darns. A couple of light unidentified marks on the satin ground which a specialist cleaner may be able to improve upon.
Measurements: 187cm X 174cm
