Antique Ersari Turkmen Torba With A Scarce 'Yurt' Design
Antique Ersari Turkmen torba with a scarce 'yurt' design.
A very good torba with a well drawn example of this classic Ersari design, this design is well documented and may represent yurts. The colour is superb with a clear red, the design in ivory stands out well against the red. The torba was probably a decoration for the camel used during a Turkmen wedding, a dowry item then displayed inside the family yurt.
The torba is in excellent condition with very slight wear and good pile.
Hand washed and ready for display.
Age: Circa 1890
