Curtain panel

Active selection in cart:
Silk curtain panel in dark blue, white, green and yellow silk on a dull red ground. The yellow silk forms the major part of the design: ten panels of exquisitely drawn arabesques are formed entirely of yellow silk wefts; the composition of the two tile panels is also largely outlined by the yellow. In the upper star panel, the pattern is formed by means of a system of super-imposed large and small squares. The outlining bands of the squares have been merged into a complicated system of interlacing strap work. In the ornament of the upper border the arabesque arches are actually supported on columns. Elaborate interlaced patterns fill the narrow bands at top and bottom. Made in: Spain or North Africa. Date: 1800s. Record ID: chndm_1902-1-962.
