Tai Mosquito Net Border
Lovingly made to encircle and decorate the cloth panels which delineate the sleeping space, this lovely old mosquito net border is in good condition for its age. With a border woven integrally with the central panel, it is very carefully made with silk warps and wefts in rich earthy colors.
We think it may be from Tai people in Vietnam, as it includes motifs of letters that we often see on textiles from Vietnam. Other motifs include stylized, star-like flowers and an abbreviated lattice pattern.
There is some discoloration from soil and a few small holes, but this is overall a very nice example. It could be used intact as a room valance, or cut into pieces for other decorative purposes.
Size: 270 in.+/- (22′-6 in.) x 12 in. (incl. border)
