Lakai embroidered ‘ilgitsh‘ pouch face (52 x 47cm)


– Unavailable

52 x 47 cm  //  1ft 9" x 1ft 6"

The square ilgitish panel is in silk chain stitch on a red cotton base. Wonderfully graphic and clearly of an archaic prototypical order. It may at sometime had a fringe. The entire piece has been conserved recently onto a linen mount. Some of the embroidery has rubbed away leaving a ghostly impression of stitch marks.

• 19th cent or earlier
