Fine Quilted Uzbek Suzani

Fine Quilted Uzbek Suzani

Probably worked in Bokhara, this wonderful suzani dates to the second half of the 19th century. Embroidered and quilted on a white cotton background, the open spacing of the ornaments is very elegant. Furthermore, on closer inspection one finds each shrub is finely embroidered and uniquely individual. No two are identical, an aesthetic feast as the eye roams from one motif to the next. The border is unusually narrow, perhaps in deference to the striking field, but is quite elegant and beautiful. Woven in 6 panels. Note the larger than average size too. This piece would be ideal as a decorative hanging or even a bedcover.
