Early 20th C. Arts & Crafts/Prarie School Architecture Woven Textile
This is an interesting cotton rep-weave (warp-faced) textile with the geometric design created from the patterning of two colors of warp-floats, cream and sage green. One of the characteristics of a rep weave is that it is finished on both sides and the colors are reversed from one side to the other, as shown in the last photo. The geometric design motifs are reminiscent of some of Frank Lloyd Wrights leaded glass window designs and of the Midwestern Prairie School Architecture decorative designs. This would place it around 1910 to 1914, when these architects were active. It was probably used as a doorway curtain or space divider. The warp thread is gathered into a decorative tasseled fringe at each end. Unfortunately, the tassels have been removed from one end, leaving the seven tassels on the other end in tact. Dimensions are 42" by 100" without the fringe. Fringe is 7".
