An exceptional antique Uzbek Lakai Tribe silk embroidered 'saygosha' hanging, dating to 19th century. These 'v' shaped hangings were dowry textiles, initially made to attach to the elegant and decorative bridal bed covers and eventually used as prized dowry wall hanging in the yurt. One sees a lot of saygoshas that are cross stitched and younger. But seldom one comes across these really old examples that are intricately chain-stitched on red wool ground. The work is remarkable. The design is very archaic. The colours are dazzling with the use of all the primary colours in natural dyes. We see yellow, blue, red, green with black and white against the rich red ground. The polychrome silk tassels are also fantastic. a magnificent textile art in mint condition. 87cm x 66cm (34"x26") tassels 17cm (6.5")
