VOK Collection: Suzani 8

A slightly curved diamond lattice of delicate golden lines covers the field of this small-format suzani. It encloses four-pointed blossoms embroidered in two shades of blue and decorated with eight serrated leaves all around so they resemble stars. The intersections of the diamonds are accentuated by small purple stars. The border is dominated by ten large blossoms composed of orange and purple segments, rendered either in top view as circular blossoms or in side view as fan-shaped palmettes. They are linked into a continuous design by a vine of lively diagonal stems with blue-green leaves. The golden spirals surrounding all ten flowers are an identifying feature of Bokhara embroideries; they are also found in large medallion suzanis. The embroidery techniques are another typical feature of the provenance – basma stitch for the blossoms, yurma chain stitch for the vines and ilmoq stitch for the outlines. – Very similar suzanis showing blue blossoms were made in Kermina, the summer residence of the emirs of Bokhara, but these appear to be later in date than this choice example in subtle shades and a wonderfully light and harmonious composition. It was the custom in Uzbek families to place small suzanis on the cushions of the bridal bed as decorative covers. Items used for this purpose were known as "bolinpus" in Uzbekistan. – Good condition, mounted onto canvas.
