19th Century Ottoman Embroidered Turkish Towel
his is one in a collection of four Turkish towels acquired from a well-known midwestern collector of fine quality antiques. Each has a unique embroidered design on a hand-woven natural handspun linen towel with embroidered patterning at each end. The color palette on all the towels is of muted tints with gold threads used as accents to add richness and sparkle to the design. The designs are done in a variety of embroidery techniques. Hems are hand stitched. These towels have a wonderful old patina and are in excellent condition considering their age.
This one has a beautiful Tree of Life motif. There are a few small stains which do not detract from the beauty of the piece. This collection of textiles was featured on the Home and Garden Antiques Show on cable T.V., where the owner of Golden Thread Antiques was interviewed about her collection of textiles shown at the Star of the North Antiques Show in Minneapolis. Size is 14 1/2 inches by 32 inches.
