Museum Conserved Antique 1850-75 TEKKE TURKMEN Tribal Chirpy Front Panel. SUPERB
The exact size, not including the black linen backing, is: 3′-11″ x 4′-9″ (120 x 144 cm). A stunningly beautiful chirpy (cloak) front panel fragment from the 3rd quarter of the 19th century coming in great original condition with wonderful colors and finely wrought totemic designs. Multi-colored, natural-dyed, silk threads were used to hand embroider tribal-inspired floral and geometric motifs on a dark blue-green silk ground color and then backed on the inside with block-printed trade cloth. This very old fragment has been museum conserved to a black linen backing for the sake of posterity and to facilitate its decorative use as an authentic example of antique Turkmen tribal textile art wall hanging display in your home or office. This textile is in a remarkable state of preservation for its early antique age only showing some very minor surface abrasion to some threads from past ethnographic age use (see close-up photos 11 and 12). Dark blue-green background color chirpy weaving were worn only by older women in the Turkmen clans, with the oldest matriarchs of the tribal entity wearing white cloaks embroidered in this style. This well-preserved and very beautiful Tekke Turkmen textile relic has been professionally cleaned to museum standards and is now ready for a collection or for immediate display.
