Description

An extremely rare Suzani whose lively tree design, reminiscent of fairytales, was embroidered on a ground of black velvet in brilliantly diverse, almost jazzy colours. In the border, the large fan-shaped palmettes with feathered outlines, alternatively pointing inwards and outwards and framed by a wide ring, are particularly striking. This Suzani was probably made by the Lakai nomads in the Shakhrisyabz area. – Somewhat stained, otherwise very well preserved. The edges have been backed with ikat fabric, the striped cotton fabric on the reverse is torn.

Origin: Shakhrisyabz, Uzbekistan
Size: 244 x 162 cm
Age: Second half of the 19th Century
Estimated Price: EUR 9,500.00
