Charmingly naive design, beautifully embroidered and made for the Western market. This would probably been a bedcover as it is lined and has fine cotton wadding. Look good framed.
The cotton ground embroidered with snarling animals, elegant deer, a variety of flying birds and insects, between flower and fruit covered trees, using twisted siks with a tambour needle, in fushia, pink, blue, green, yellow silks on a medium shade ground, lined with linen and with evidence of a cotton filling, 33 x 6 inches; 85 x15 cm
There is a large water stain near the right hand palm tree, 3 in; 8 cm at widest x 1 1/2 in; 4 cm deep. You really only notice this when you look closely. There are also two other brown marks, one in the palm tree on right and the other between birds legs middle top. Ask for photos.
