Antique Large Hand-Tufted Silk Rug / Hanging | Horses (11332)

  • $155.00

Stunning antique hand-tufted, long thread silk tapestry with rod for hanging.

We think this started off as a Rug, as the black fringe looks to have been added at a later date, as it has been sewn on by machine. There are a few broken tassels.

In good overall condition. There are a few age/use marks (light discolourations).

We have examined this closely and do not think that it has been made by machine as the back looks hand-tufted. The silk pile on its front is long, and very soft to the touch. A magnificent piece of artwork that will have taken numerous hours to complete. We do not know its specific history, unfortunately.

Measures 1800mm width of wooden rod x 1740mm tapestry width x 1280mm high.
**PICK UP ONLY - unless Buyer arranges collection.**
