Vintage Applique Quilts
We have a selection of these old Rajasthani appliqué canopy covers .See below for a detail ofone magnificent piece but better to come into the shop and ask to see them !
They are mostly circa 1920 ...on madder vegetable dye hand woven "khadi " cotton with intricate "cut -out" patterns carefully stitched on top of the under cloth ..creating a riot of pattern.Some have added embroidery too ...
They are delicate so better on the wall or a bed rather than a sofa !
They start at £350...and are approximately 200 x 200cm in size .
All old all different all one of a kind .........
