Central Asia late 1880-90
Very distinctive design and quality to this Turkoman tent bag ( torbah ) from the Chodor clan. Incredibly fine condition for a piece this old!! For those who know antique rugs,, the deep blue aniline dye used for some areas ( now a gray/brown on the face and center fringe) is a guarantee as to the age. See the detail photos compare how time and exposure have encouraged the unusual color aging of these sections. All the other dyes are from natural sources like madder root / indigo and the wools are all handspun native fiber.
