Pair of Fine Museum Quality Stumpwork Zardozi Embroidered Panels: India C19th
A framed pair of 19th century museum quality zardozi stumpwork embroideries with birds floral and foliage motifs and Trees of Life with water at the base of the trees. The pair of embroideries are mirror images of each other.
Hand embroidered onto midnight black silk velvet ground, the work is of exceptional quality, and would work well in most interior settings.
The zardozi embroidery is worked by hand in old silver with padded, or stumpwork areas which have small touches of floss silks to highlight and bring small flashes of colour to the embroideries.
They are in excellent antique condition.
