Panel from a Tent Lining

Not on view

The motifs on this panel, originally one of several joined as a lining for a tent, relate to those found on a larger group of dyed textiles attributed to Burhanpur, a city in the northern Deccan that is believed to have been an important center for production in the eighteenth century. Several other panels with rinceau borders around niches containing tall flowering plants growing out of diminutive vases are known, including a set that once belonged to Tipu Sultan of Mysore (1750–1799).
