    Heavy handmade silk tapestry. 4' x 4'.
    Appears to have a unique motif. Maybe Mecca... Israel ..... Chinese???
    Pink and green colors.
    Scalloped edge is made of heavy silver thread. Heavy gold thread throughout the design.
    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi--I think this is Hagia Sophia in Istanbul Turkey -looks older --pre 1920's era https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hagia_Sophia
      knotted trim lace -more like hairpin lace done with a needle
      Nice fun piece!
