Late-Ottoman embroidered panels, from the Epirus region (probably Ioannina), 18th century. The region was known both for its textiles and silver working. This colorful example draws large stylized palmettes based on persianate "botehs" or paisleys. The richly embroidered surface, lushness and variety of color, and clarity of drawing are indicative of the finest quality of work.
