This particular example is characterized by a small format as well as by a Directional pattern of floral shrubs contained within cartouches, a design which is characteristic of the textile arts of the Mughal period and which derives from the architectural iconography of the court, as seen in majestic examples such as the Taj Mahal in Agra. The highly refined border of conjoined leafs and flower frames perfectly the composition. A museum quality antique textile is original condition.
