ss01 Jpeg 56K Section of a very old Tai Daeng “curtain” used for wedding and complete with red cotton ruffle.  The gold thread is unusual.
This wonderful peacock is a small section of a very old (pre-1950) T'ai Daeng curtain, topped with its very own red cotton ruffle! The use of gold thread and royal symbols indicates the textile was used to mark significant life events such as marriage, when a couple becomes "king and queen " for a day.
Cotton: supplementary weft in cotton and silk, with gold thread; aniline dyes in purple, red and pink
