Description

Size: 4ft 7in x 1ft 6in (140 x 45cm). Excluding tassels.
Antique Ersari Turkmen torba of good size, with an unusual design. Probably by the Ersari of Northern Afghanistan or Southern Turkmenistan.
Circa 1900.
This large size Ersari torba was probably woven as a dowry item and used to decorate the side of a camel during the wedding procession. The torba has a repeat design of well known Turkmen elements to the face on a scarce ivory ground.
Outstanding condition with very slight even wear. It is rare to find an example in such an excellent state of preservation, the torba retains its long coloured tassels to the lower edge. There is a old small repair to the center.
Hand washed and ready for display.
