I would suggest that this brocade is almost certainly woven by Morton's. There is a very slight Islamic influence to the design. Very good quality fabric woven with metal thread. This would look stunning as a curtain or could be used for upholstery.


The length with panels of blue, crimson, natural flowering trees, their backgrounds in teal, grass green, ivory, surrounded by joined loops, trefoils and leaves, all in crimson silk and gold wire thread,

 8ft 2 in; 2.5 m long

47 1/2 in; 1. 2m wide


Very good.
