This piece has a very finely woven diamond motif in slate grey/blue cotton on an ivory cotton backing. The end panel is in faded pink cotton with a diamond and flower motif in white, red, yellow and blue silk threads. The bottom right corner of one end has frayed a little and the ivory cotton panel at the other end has some discoloration. The threads of the woven motif are loose in places, and there are some threadbare patches, but the overall condition is reasonable and consistent with its age. This vintage textile would make a charming wall hanging and could be framed as a wall panel with dramatic effect.
