Beautiful early silk ikat coat with great presence. Warp-faced weave with a silk warp and cotton weft, with original braiding around the original Central Asian block printed cotton lining. An identical lining cloth, or 'chit', dated to the early 19th century, is in the famous Guido Goldman Collection. It is illustrated in: Ikat. Silks of Central Asia. Edited by Kate Fitz Gibbon & Andrew Hale. London, Laurence King Publishing, 1997, Fig. 123, p. 185.
This is a most impressive robe, and a real gem from a bygone age.
