An excellent and very rare antique Uzbek silk velvet / Bakhmal Ikat pillow dating to the second half of 19th century Bukhara. Silk velvet Ikats are some of the most coveted of all Central Asian Ikats. The complex weaving process of the fabrics meant only the noble and aristocratic families could afford to buy them and make robes or hangings from them. As they were valued as much as gold even small bits of these fabrics were tailored into decorative things such as this pillow or hats. The fantastic antique lining of this piece suggests this was assembled closer to the time when the ikat was woven. The colours exceptional colours and classic design is beautiful. In good shape. size 35cm x 30cm (14" x 12")
