Superb Egyptian Applique Wall Hanging
H: 240cm (94.5")W: 135cm (53.1")
A superb, very large Egyptian applique-work wall hanging, circa 1920, hand stitched on a cotton/hemp back cloth.
These textile wall hangings were popular tourist souvenirs during the 1920's & 30's, particularly following the discovery of Tutankhamum's tomb in 1922. This is a particularly good example, in excellent condition with colours remaining clear and bright.
