Landlocked Does Not Mean Design Blocked

Vintage Suzani Textile
19th Century

I am huge fan of vintage textiles so when this gem came into AERO I immediately knew I had to share it with all of you!  A 19th century chain-stitched suzani from Uzbekistan on dark, almost black velvet ground, with assorted silk-embroidered stylized desert flora with palmettes and roundels, embroidered over five panels.  This would make the perfect finishing touch to a bed or better yet hung on the wall as art.
