PHULKARI THROW / SHAWL   #2054-501  $4,000.


8’-5” x 4’-9”    (2.6m x 145cm)
India/Pakistan, Punjab Province; c. early 1900’s
Khadi Cotton (homespun, handwoven); Silk Embroidery (untwisted floss)
condition: good; slight discolorations & darning, otherwise good condition

We love this piece- an unusually wide four panel Phulkari with simple alternating floral field repeat of deep crimson embroidery with green stamen highlights. Structured and planned patterning and yet the wavering hand shows. Note one particular floral bud near center in bright fluorescent pink silk floss.
