Superb Old Shawl with Double sided embroidery
The simplicity of the motifs makes them all the more attractive! Very highly developed motifs compared to others from the same area.
Probably from the Nagaur region of Rajasthan
Superb colors and motifs!
Age unknown but probably among the older shawls of the region.
Has unusual element: beadwork
Has signs of use – small tears, stains etc
If there is only one shawl to beacquired from this category, then it would have to be this one. This is the “best-of-class” piece.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
