Embroidered Pouch, Uzbek from the Shakhrysabs region of Central Asia, 19th C., 4” x 6”
Another lovely pouch used for valuable with a distinctive shape and lovely palette.
The condition is perfect, and all the colors are derived from natural dyes. One of the dyes appears to be “faded” but it is probably a logwood dye, seen in Chinese rugs, that the Uzbek used as well in silk thread that may very well have been a trade item from further east.
