VINTAGE WALL HANGING | SOVIET UNION
Vintage Suzani from the late Soviet Era, 1970-1980. Originating from Uzbekistan and heavily influenced by it's Russian occupation this huge wall hanging features a bold hand stitched design. Embroidered by artisanal kolkhozes (collective farms) or individually at home to commemorate special events and holidays.
Charming, light and vivacious you can see how much craft, skill and enjoyment went into making this unique and treasured vintage wall hanging.
It's rare to find such a highly decorated piece with such political symbolism.
ONE OF A KIND ORIGINAL VINTAGE PIECE
This very rare example does have clear signs of it's age, which you can see on the photographs. However, these marks do not detract from it's beauty and heritage.
W.A.Green says, "This huge wall hanging needs an equally huge wall. We love how such a politically charged message is juxtaposed with such a charming floral design".Size: 115 cm x 239 cm
