Old (Antique?) Tapestry depicting middle eastern marketplace?
06 February 2024

Tapestry depicting middle eastern marketplace? Appears to be a cotton fabric with limited color selections possibly due to age. Tight stitching but not all identical sizes on the stitching. Bottom left corner separated from frame but not torn. Frame and especially backing may not be original to the tapestry. From the back picture you can see the finished edging that was wrapped around the cardboard to fit the frame.


Approximately 60 inches wide by 20 1/2 inches tall.
