Door curtains are significant pieces because in Tai Dum tradition they protect the occupants from negative energy entering the home. Accordingly, great care was taken in making them. This rare vintage textile is in very good condition considering its age, but discoloration and stains are present on the end panels. It would make a charming wall hanging and could be framed with dramatic effect.
