Turkey. Early 19th century
Silk embroidery and gold couching on silk satin.
36" x 30." Here is a good project for someone who enjoys conservation work. The embroidery in this exquisite piece is in excellent condition, but as you can see in the photos, two of the silk fabric edges are badly frayed. The piece of course needs to be mounted. There are fragments of matching silk on a frayed back side lining which could be used at the edges.
The four dark green and gold circular tugra are almost three-dimensional in this piece, and contrast effectively with the scrolling floral motifs.
