Faux-Ikat Silk Dress. Uzbekistan, 3rd quarter 20th century. Machine-printed ikat with unusual tulip pattern on heavy-weight silk sateen. Unlined; machine-embroidery around neck opening. 41" shoulder to hem; 61" cuff to cuff. Cut very full. Overall good condition - a few stains on bottom front (see detail photo, dark areas are shadows). Makes a striking "modernist" wall hanging. Smock-like dresses with spread collars like this example became popular as everyday wear in the Soviet era. The young women in this archival photo c.1930s - 1940s by Max Penson are wearing similar dresses. To see more textiles and books from my collection please go to www.susanmeller.com
