Antique Uzbek Suzani on Yellow Ground / 7'10"x9'4"/239x287cm


Rich and densely embroidered antique, collectible suzani in silk in rich magenta, white, dark green, black, on lovely marigold cotton.

Sunburst flowers in red-pink are encircled by dark melon vines, all highlighted against the rich dark yellow-marigold cotton ground. Originally made to be part of the wedding dowry, this suzani would have been a prized possession. Dense with embroidery, this piece has lovely weight.

Suzani - from the Persian word for "needle" - is the term used for a range of hand-embroidered covers and hangings from Uzbekistan. Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.

These pieces were made as part of the dowry and as such were prized possessions. But they have age, which is part of their extreme beauty. Our pieces are offered as the best of their categories in terms of artistry and condition. All are sold as-is.

This piece has fine, tight silk embroidery on cotton ground.
