400. An immaculate Antique Tekke Torba

Antique Turkoman Tekke Turkmenistan

400. Provenance: Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes, Fars Province, Southern Persia

Size: 100 x 36 cm

Age: Circa 1890

Condition. Very good. One small patch of minor fading.

Notes: Such storage bags would have been used to store clothes or implements, and would have been hung from the sides of the yurt or tribal tent. This one has only natural dyes and is very tightly woven. Such pieces would in all likelyhood have been part of a bride's dowry to the groom's family. Wonderful.

Price: $375
