Object Description
Beige rectangular with embroidery in blue, rust, gold and green. Fringe on opposite ends with multicolored tassels. Rust fringe on other sides. The tassels are usually attached to beige strings, with longer, red strings found periodically. The colors of the tassels are multiple shades of red, blue, green, pink, orange, and yellow. The rust fringe is smaller and composed of loops. About halfway through, the color goes from rust to orange. On either end, the embroidered design consists of a rust colored design with four square shaped design with green, red, and blue colors. The middle has flower shapes with pinwheel shapes in the middle and squares branching off of the pinwheel shapes.
Origin
The change of color on the fringe along the long sides of the table runner may indicate that this product was handmade, since the colors don't line up.
