Block Print Cotton Textile, India, circa 1900, 5'10" x 8'11"

A large and intricately patterned block print textile from India.  Apparently made for export, it still bears the tag from a renowned London shop from which it was purchased, Liberty’s of London. 

The design is apparently derived from a Persian model, featuring two large cypress tree element in the center, each emerging from a bed of jewels(?) enclosed with an arch.

The condition is very good, with only one minor stain at the very top end (see detail image).

Price - $1200 including domestic USA shipping.
