Each panel: 7” x 8” • Framed size: 17¾” x 11½” • sold

A fine pair of Turkish Ottoman panels, these are hand embroidered with silk and metallic thread. The influence of Islamic court design is apparent in the symmetrical and handsome composition of stylized flower containers and upright shaded leaves, each sitting on a horizontal band of fat buds and leaves. The work on the reverse, seen in the photo shown below, is just as neatly finished as that on the front.

Worked in silk and metallic thread on cotton, these are in excellent condition and now conservation mounted into a reeded cherry frame.
