Pair, Mid Century Black Silk, Hand Painted Thai Art
Interesting pair of mid century hand painted black silk textile pieces. Likely fromThailand for American markets during the post war era. Musicians and dancers tell a little story of Thailand culture. If observed closely with a magnifying glass, through it's original glass, one can see the intricate painted images up close and the texture of fabric.
We can see these pieces reframed however the old original frames really highlight the gold painted images of dancers and musicians. In original black and gilt/gold painted wood frames behind glass. Unsigned. Frames have some chips, wear and small paint loss. Backside paper has wear/staining and is easily removable. The fabric images appear to be in good condition however we have not removed them from the frames.
