This wall hanging-cum-coverlet is remarkable for its neat workmanship. The spaces between the four corner motifs and the central medallion are filled with symmetrically arranged flower and bud motifs.
It was common to execute raised work embroidery, as in this piece, by placing a piece of cardboard cut in the shape of each ornamental element of a motif and covering it with zari thread embroidery to lend it volume.
