Item Details
Description

Fantastic large fragment of an Indian Trade textile.

Amazing Indigo blue &rose / salmon flower.

A large example with the same aesthetic quality - with dozens of flowers - is present in the Tapi collection. [reference: pages 6 & 7 of 'Masters of the Cloth']

Another similar example has been published on page 55 in 'Master Dyers to the World' by Mattiebelle Gittinger

Collected on a field visit to Toraja, Sulawesi.

This fragment has been saved from a fire - therefore has burn marks present. Holes and stains. Edges not even.

59 x 52 cm (approximately)

1) The Ashmolean Museum collection

2) The Kelsey Museum collection in Ann Arbor

3) 'Master Dyers to the World' by Mattiebelle Gittinger

4) Woven Cargoes by John Guy

Comparison with other similar examples suggests that this is a few centuries old.

[Similar examples have been dated to be from the 13th - 19th century]

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a unique work or art

Such pieces can be found only in museums.
