Description

The six panels in this rare and beautiful bag-face contain cosmic imagery - sun, moon and stars - which is rarely seen in bag-faces of this early age, possibly mid 19th century. The main border design is also unusual and the wool quality is glossy and like silk-velvet.
This is a highly collectable piled weaving with fabulous natural shades of madder and indigo.
Size: 66cm x 59cm (2' 2" x 1' 11").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1468
