I'm guessing that this is a cover meant for a rectangular shaped table that is up against a wall. It could also be used as a curtain. The silk embroidery is done on a black background with makes for a striking contrast. It measures 56" X 16.25" with 10.50" long fringe. There are a few pulled threads but all in all it is in very nice condition. Probably from the 1920's or 30's.
