Ispherhan antique Palampore cotton print (101 x 82cm)

£ 840.00

101 x 82 cm  //  3ft 4" x  3ft

In keeping with earlier Coromandel Palamopore resist / prints which were made in this design and may be mistaken the colours incoprate a soft mauve more characteristic of erarlier South Indian work than that of Persian. The work incorpoartes hand printing and additional Kalamkari free hand painting onto mordent. The top center inscription reads  سبحان ربی العلی و بحمده  which is a standard prayer.

• possibly second quarter of the 19th cent
