Beautiful antique Ottoman Greek embroidery arched prayer panel known as a quibla. It is composed of various antique Ottoman Greek embroideries(silk, cotton and fine wool? on linen) in order to create a prayer mat, which are probably from the 19th century with some possibly later or earlier. Framed by loom woven cotton ribbon with attached tassels. Unusually, a lot of the motifs in the top ribbon are gold-colored metal wire. The bottom ribbon is also partially metal wire, but less than the top. 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 stains, embroidery thread loss and wear(Old worn pieces were re-purposed for these qiblas.). Some replaced embroidery threads in diagonal lines. There is a repaired tear in one of the sides. Some missing fringe; some replaced tassels within fringe; some shortened fringe. Original fabric back lining. See photographs, which were taken outdoors without a flash on a sunny day. If you would like more photographs, please message me. Size: 25-1/2” wide average x 50” long excluding fringes, which are 4” - 5-1/2” long
