Dear Dan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

Based on the information and images you provided, this item is:

A set of Asian Embroidery, mid to late 20th century. From Chinese silk embroidery to Indian zardozi work, Asian embroidery encompasses a diverse range of styles, techniques, and traditions. The meticulous craftsmanship involved in creating embroidered pieces reflects a deep connection to heritage and a celebration of aesthetics.

Asian embroidery often features vibrant colors, elaborate patterns, and meticulous stitching. In Chinese embroidery, for example, silk threads are skillfully manipulated to create intricate scenes, often depicting nature, folklore, or historical events. The use of symbolic motifs imbues the embroidery with layers of meaning, connecting the artwork to cultural traditions and beliefs.

The diversity of Asian embroidery extends to techniques such as Japanese sashiko, a form of functional embroidery that reinforces fabric through decorative stitching, and Indian chikankari, known for its delicate white-on-white embroidery. These techniques not only showcase the versatility of embroidery but also highlight the regional nuances that make each style unique.
