Safavid Woven Silk Fragment

late 17th / early 18th century, 19" x 18"

Though the design here is a banded design, the primary center piece of silk woven with metal thread is one woven piece, rather than strips sewn together. The border is, of course, comprised of segments of a narrow strip.

A small pattern subtle design, but with wonderful drawing, colors, and in very good condition.
