A Chromatic Complex Striped Cotton: Green Blue Orange
ca. late nineteenth century
64" x 14 1/2", 162.5 cm x 37 cm
Please look carefully at the accompanying detail photos of this lovely length of hand loomed cotton. The hand loomed cotton length shows two, wide stripes, each stripe being composed of a palette of rich colors: greens, blues, orange, deep indigo and white: a lovely and surprising chromatic effect, and one that is very entertaining to the eyes.
The cloth is in very good condition for its age, still very sturdy and still showing a very attractive, irregular selvedge, reinforcing the fact that this length is hand woven.
A beautifully complex length of old cotton, most likely taken from a futon cover, and one that is a delight to the eyes.
