Vintage Samarkand Suzani, Uzbekistan
Vintage Samarkand suzani, Uzbekistan
Tashkent suzani from Samarkand Uzbekistan, 1950.
Overall condition is pretty good for its age and use.
"Suzani" means needlework and these embroideries are some of the most characteristic forms of textile art from Central Asia. The mastery of color and the dynamic sense of movement they convey continue to add depth and joy to contemporary interiors. A high level of creative variation and the individuation of each flower are what make each piece unique.
Measures: 52" x 51.
