Kalotaszeg wall hanging 200 x 66cm

Wall hanging 200 x 66cm

Pillar box red on a pale home-loomed cloth. Beautifully embroidered in what is known as "writing stitch"  the pattern was drawn on the cloth by a "writing woman" ( most villages had at least one) and then embroidered by another woman.

This piece has been kept in a dowry chest in  a small village n the Kaolotasezg region in Transylvania.  I bought it from a woman who had been passed it by her mother in law some  40 years ago
price: £250.00
