September Antique Quilt & Textile Auction
Antique Early 20th Century Woven Jacquard Table Cover Middle Eastern Theme, cotton, and measures 62in by 65in, plus fringe. Machine loomed. Earth toned colors: browns and beiges. Medallion style with Middle Eastern men talking in the center, each corner featuring men on horses hunting a tiger, and the side vignettes feature a woman a well talking to a woman, and a man presenting a horse to a woman. There is a small tag attached with some family information, and that this was used as a table cover in the 1920s. I have seen similar pieces from the 1940s in cotton with rayon, but not all cotton like this.
