An archaic Antique Ersari Turkoman / Turkmen Talismanic double sided silk embroidery moska, dating between late 19th century and early 1900s. Such fine triangular silk embroideries were known as moskas and to made to serve the superstitious beliefs of the Turkoman cultures. Moskas were attached to garments of children (the future hope of the tribe) in the hope to bring protection to them. Inside these amulets sacred protective scriptures are concealed aimed to protect the child. At best they can be extraordinary pieces of textile art. What makes this beautiful example different is that the tassels are a combination of glass beads and spices. Sometimes we see spices used in Central Asian textiles or jewellery. The reason is perhaps because of good scent and their disease fighting power. The design is classic quad bird motifs and repeats identically on both sides. size: 12cm x 6.5cm (4.5" x 2.5") with tassels extending 20cm (10").
