Despite some repairable splitting (as shown in detail images) and one or two areas of old 'invisible' darning, it remains in overall good, unfaded condition. There are also minor watermarks along the bottom edge. This unique antique textile of exceptional quality is lined with old linen and equipped with hanging rings along the edges. Its dimensions are 63 inches by 63 inches (160 cm x 160 cm).
