Here is a wonderful old Uzbek embroidered belt measuring 32" long by 4 1/4" wide (81.28 cm x 10.80 cm). The belt is in very good condition with the exception that there was the use of corrosive red wool (dyed with Cinnabar) which shows signs of wear. The use of red wool we find in older embroideries in that it was imported from India and this importing was stopped around 1880 (this information is from page 141 of a Central Asian Embroidery Bible titled "Uzbek Embroideries in the Nomadic Tradition" by Kate Fitz Gibbon and Andrew Hale- a must have for the Uzbek & Tribal embroidery collector. With the import of this red wool (the belt also has a lovely red silk) ending in the 1880's we can safely assume that pieces using quantities of red wool for embroidery were likely embroidered before 1880 - In this case i believe this belt could be as old as mid nineteenth century. There is a vast array of wonderful deep colors: white, gold, yellow, light powder blue, mid blue, dark navy blue, a blue/green (similar to what we see in mid century Yomud alymulks), green, red silk, red wool, and a rich lavender. The back of the belt is lined with silk ikat. This is a real Central Asian Treasure.
