Turkmen saddle cover (47 x 53cm)

£ 90.00

47 x 53 cm = 1ft 6 x 1ft 8"

Although obviously made in the Soviet period there is no doubt for the genuine purpose of this artifact as specifically to cover a horse saddle with its pommel opening. Much of the Turkmen weaving post Russian revolution was increasing directed toward commercial products for resale for which this item owes nothing .

Circa 1930
