1920s Egyptian appliqued cloth panel made from what would have been at the time, old textile remnants. The panel is a door-sized covering with hand-stitched applique of Egyptian motifs using a combination of muslin and linen on a canvas ground. It is a finely-stitched and detailed example of its kind with a palette that has faded over time; the once bright hues are now the beautifully subtle and understated shades of browns, reds and blues. Its highly decorative appeal endures and is perhaps improved by the passage of time!
Some sections are fragile and brittle such as around the border, and with applique missing from some places to reveal what was once the original fabric hue (see garment section). Please view images. Size: 74" h x 30 ½"w.
