UZBEKISTAN, ANTIQUE 19thC EMBROIDERY SUZANI PRAYER MAT WALL HANGING, SILK COTTON
UZBEKISTAN, ANTIQUE 19thC EMBROIDERY SUZANI PRAYER MAT WALL HANGING, SILK COTTON. A beautifully executed antique hand embroidered suzani prayer mat, of natural dyed silks on cotton, originating from Uzbekistan, and dating to the 19th Century. The embroidery design, all chain stitch, incorporates vines of serrated leaves in blue outlined in yellow gold, with various floral motifs worked in deep orange and cerise, a row of palmettes outlining the central arched area. The embroidery is on cream coloured cotton, the same original fabric used for the backing, with quilted detail to the central area. The whole panel is formed of three long panels sewn together. The lower edge of the panel demonstrates its use as a prayer mat, with two circular areas of wear in line with the position of the knees. The back of the panel has a section of cotton sewn over the worn area to strengthen. The upper edge has a modern strengthening tape attached to allow it to be hung on a wall when not in use. In addition, a pressed metal tag is attached to the top left corner with script to each side. 132 cm x 86 cm or 52 inches x 34 inches. In good/fair antique condition, with wear appropriate with substantial age and regular use, mainly to the edges and centre, retaining bright colours. Importantly, the embroidery remains largely intact apart from some wear to the upper section close to the arch where hands would rest in prayer.
