Uzbek Suzani Tashkent 19th century

Uzbek Suzani Tashkent 19th century

This large, colorful embroidery was made as a dowry item in the second half of the 19th century in Uzbekistan. Stylistically, Pskent suzanis are quite different from those made in Tashkent and have specific border patterns not found on the latter. Suzanis from Pskent rarely leave any background showing. Pskent designs have also been associated with signs of the Zodiac and other astrological symbols, perhaps more convincingly so than those from Tashkent. Their border decoration appears to have a narrower repertoire of variations than do the numerous interpretations of very much the same theme when used as field patterns. These embroideries are very collectible and essentially undervalued in today’s marketplace. They represent a good investment in terms of potential value as well exceptionally well priced for what they are, a thoroughly wonderful and very colorful example of the material culture of Central Asia from a bygone era.

Size: 7'4" x7'10"

Colors: All natural dyes

Condition: Excellent with no obvious flaws, some corrosion of the bright red woolen embroidery used as highlights, a typical embellishment used during this period by the Uzbek women. This is an antique textile, therefore it cannot be expected that it will be in “new condition.”
