The tulip, which derives its name from the turkish word for turban, is a primary motif in Ottoman art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The flower appears frequently on luxury brocades and velvets made for the royal court. One of these designs -- the tulip flanked by serrated leaves -- is the source for this later embroidery.
Gifted December 1959 by Mrs. (Freda) Frederic H. Douglas [Denver, CO, 1902-1979] to Denver Art Museum
