sale description Beautiful Coptic Textile Fragments, Ancient Egypt, Early Christian Art, Fifth Century

Here are two wonderful fragments of Coptic textile art, acquired recently at a Paris sale. They are from ancient Egypt, around the fifth century, and are precious mementos of early Christian art and civilization. I guarantee their authenticity as antiques. I assume they were originally part of items of clothing or vestments.

Dimensions are about 7.5 inches by 4 inches, and 8 inches by 4.5 inches. As far as condition goes, remember that these woven objects are about 1,600 years old, so it is a miracle that they are here at all! And yet they make such a strong impression, with their geometric patterns, influenced by Greek and Roman art, and by their incredibly vivacious coloring, still so intense after all those centuries. .

These small things give off a big vibration, and are real treasures. I am pricing them modestly. Shipping will be $12 from France to the U.S.
