Turkish Man's Sash
19th c

Great bold design and colourway. You could use this sash on either side. The lovely faded side or the stronger colour underside. The embroidery is reversible so either side would work, depending on your preference.


Each end of this very long sash with bold design of five flower heads and three smaller in soft coral, mid blues and lime green, their centres of gold filé thread, the ends embroidered with a zig zag pattern, the cotton muslin ground with four bands of self stripes, rolled edges, original central join.

8ft x 7 in;  2.4 x 18 cm,


Very good and fresh looking. There is one mark on the edge of each end. Ask for photos if you cannot see. A few above each end, and an area of light staining a third of the way on the muslin.
