This is a gorgeous, gold threaded embroidered runner from Turkey, dating to around 1845. The embroidery was handmade by a bride to be kept forever by her decedents. The cloth is soft. I don’t know if it is cotton or linen.

The gold threads are bright and shiny, good on either side of the cloth.

When I got this it was extremely water stained. I worked on it, and I think it came out pretty well. You can still see a bit of some of the staining, but overall it is far better than before. There is one stain I couldn’t get out, s there was a hole in it, and I was afraid to make it worse.

There are a few age holes as well, as expected in material as old as this.

Size: approx. 66 7/16 L x 25 11/15” W

The needlepoint is: approx. 21 ¼” L x 4 5/8” W on one edge.
Approx. 21 5/8” L x 4 ¾” W on the other side

If anyone would like the recipe for stains—it is cheap and easy, email me.
