Silk Ikat Chapan Coat: Turkmen C19th century

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A silk Ikat coat from the Turkmen of Turkmenistan darling from the second half of the 19th century.

Made from a wonderful hand loomed zig-zag, Ikat silk in a beautiful colour combination of green and purple. The photographs do not capture the almost insect-like iridescence of the silk.

The coat has been lined throughout with a traditional Russian block print and the coat revers are edged with a vibrant Ikat silk. The sleeve arms, front openings and hem are all finished with finger-woven silk braid.

In good antique condition with some water marks, and a historic and rather lovely patch inset into the silk below the left arm. Some wear around the collar area.

Measurements taken with coat lying flat.

Across front: 60cm 

Length: 125cm

Sleeve length: 49cm
