Beautiful antique Ottoman Greek or Epirus embroidery arched prayer panel known as a quibla. It is composed of various antique Ottoman embroideries, which are probably from the 18th and 19th centuries, in order to create a prayer mat. There is a small line of textile outlining the arch that may be a Persian silk brocade. Backed with a fine linen or cotton cloth that is marked in Arabic script(Turkish was written in Arabic script at this time.), but i can not read it. If anyone can, please message me. Qiblas / Qiblehs were primarily used by women to hang on the wall of a house or a tent during prayer. For a discussion on qiblas, see Roderick Taylor, “Ottoman Embroidery”, Interlink Books, New York, 1993, pp. 133-139. Good condition for age with some staining, seam separation, some wear/holes to linen base areas(Some of them may be original as old worn pieces were re-purposed for these qiblas.). Some small square and rectangle residue marks along edges on back, which may be from some sort of old tape used to hang it. Some missing, loose and replaced fringes(which could be done better). See photographs, which were taken outdoors without a flash. i do not accept returns, so please ask questions, and if desired, request more photographs. Size: 24” x 48”(excluding fringe); fringe 4” inch long
