Antique Swedish geometric wall hanging tapestry from Skane.
This piece is well over 100 or more years old.
Made in the rolakan technique the geometric star-crosses
have been in the Skansk design lexicon since the 1600's.
The flax-wool fiber was most certainly hand dyed.
These pieces were made as table covers and were hung on the wall
when not being used; t are rings along one side
so it can hang horizontally.
T is a fair amount of wear as can be seen in the close ups
but no major damage or anything to detract from its antique quality.
It is very large, 62" x 21"
