Two tropical bird Mexican molas - vintage hand stitched art
Pair of vintage tropical bird patterned molas stitched by the Kuna of the San Blas Archipelago in Mexico. Reverse appliqué with a purple base and hand stitched red overlay. Unfinished edges.
Piece had been DIY framed, so there is some masking tape residue and curled under edges. Add binding for a wall hanging, reframe in something that matches your decor, stitch onto a pillow or press and hang as is.
Will be shipped loosely rolled.
SIZE single bird mola is 8.75" x 6.5", double bird mola is 10" x 7"
CONDITION Very good. Note tape residue mentioned above. There is some discoloration on the outside green border of the 2 bird mola, not sure of the cause but it might be some bleeding from the red fabric underneath.
