Tashkent Suzani, Uzbekistan, 19th Century, 5’6” x 8’4”

A relatively small and seemingly of exceptional age, given how most embroideries of this type look.   The colors are extremely pleasing with the  light apricot, ligher green and even shade of madder red contributing a distinctive palette.

There are some condition issues, with stabilizing old cotton pieces of cloth sewn on to the back in several places (see detail images).  The colors are all derived from natural dyes.

Price - $1650 including shipping (domestic USA only)
