Object Description
Table runner with needlepoint cross stitch, geometric design and gold thread fringes. Gold, pink, navy. Arrows point to one side of the runner in a chevron-like way. The arrows alternate from navy to gold and then from pink to gold and so on. In each of the "arrows" there are four Greek crosses in alternately navy and pink colors. For example, pink crosses lay in a navy arrow and vice versa. On the border of the two long sides are two stripes, alternating from gold to navy to pink. The gold thread throughout the runner is a metallic gold color. The back is lined with light pink silk fabric. There are minor snags in this backing.
Origin
This table runner was created in Myteline, Greece by Mina Tiftinksis. It can be used as a home accessory to place on a table for decor. It is unknown how or when the textile made its way to the US, nor is it known how the donor acquired it from Mina Tiftinksis.
