Embroidered Block Print Textile: C1900 India, for export
From the turn of the 19th and 20th century, a block printed cotton which has been decoratively hand embroidered I. silks.
Made in India we have a collection of these prints with embroidery which are possibly from Kashmir in northern India and we’re made for export.
This piece may have been intended as a table cover or shawl. It would work well as a wall hanging and would benefit from being stretched and mounted, a service we are happy to offer from our studios. Please ask us for details.
In excellent condition for a textile from this era, some signs of wear to outermost edges and an overall patina of age as to be expected on an antique textile.
