Mystery Textile Number 10
Cotton block printed lining
I have a turkmen chyrpy with a lining like this.
dear johanna raynor
an excellent guess BUT . . . this is the lining of the mystery textile and not the attribution of the textile itself. what is the textile?
to summarize you said
that is not the textile but could well have been, although the real turkmen experts out there will help us later when more clues are shown with the exact tribal attribution
i suggest that you guess other textiles that might have used a lining like this.
a new clue will be posted latter in the week to help.
Well...thats a big field and I haven't seen that many turkmen
Still in the archives of salon 108 there is a picture of a bokche with a very similar lining so I'll go for that
next guess to that would be also a small bag.
Is the yellow in the picture an embroidery thread? If so the item needn't be large.
ps Nice talking to you in that part of the world. Glad you aren't blocked
dear johanna raynor,
the yellow thread could well be an embroidery thread. and now as to your two further guesses
i am happy to announce
******trumpet, drums. and timpani fanfare*******
that to the best of my knowledge your solutions for the mystery items are
please try again
further clues in a few days or even sooner
and nice talking to you
The triangular embroidery looks like part of the a camel headdress but still
can't quite work out where the flatweave bit goes
Is this one so simple that only a beginner like me is bothering to guess?
Just for me!! thank you Richard

congradulations to johanna raynor . . . .
she previously recognized the block printed backing cloth as turkman around 1900 [could be much earlier but not much later becuase russian cloth was mostly used as backing cloth - lining - through the 20th cent.
yes it is a complete camel decoration covering the head and the neck - the triangualar pieces hang down from both sides of the camels neck.
you can see one

i will ask steve to post the other clues.
all honor to ms. raynor
Here are the final two images for this piece:
the camel decoration is hanging in a corner of the dining room . . . you cant see all of it but i believe you can get an idea . . . .
