Double Ikat futon cover fragment
Hand loomed cotton, indigo
, madder
27" (68.5 cm) wide by 66" (187 cm) long
Late 19th to early 20th century
Ex Fifi White, Berkeley, California.

These two panels are in excellent condition with only a 1" L-shaped tear near the upper left hand corner in the photo below. It's notable that the use of madder for the smaller bubbles is only employed in some areas; the top section and upper right area have small pale yellow bubbles.
