Impressive Patchwork Wallhanging depicting Ancient Egyptian Husband & Wife at their Wedding Ceremony above a lower panel depicting a Sphinx .
with a little bit of natural wear, this is a beautiful and colorful souvenir of a 'grand tour' to Egypt in the period just before the First World War.

The patchwork measures 68 inches high x 36 wide. In reasonable condition with some discoloration from age, hand stitched on a hemp backing by needlework craftswomen in Egypt, circa 1890-1910.

Its often assumed nowadays that the Egyptian patchworks date from the Art Deco 'Egyptian Revival ' period of the 1920s. But I believe that they were also being created and sold before that time to the late Victorian and Edwardian tourists- and in which case can now be classed as 'antique'. But maybe subject for further research.
