Hello-

I have a what a I believe to be 19th Century Alpaca Woolen Poncho that I obtained in Bolivia in the 1970's. I am here to request help in finding any information as far as who I can talk to, to get an appraisal or general price on this artifact. For those interested, there is a possible commission for someone who can help me find enough information as far as backround, price range, and age of this particular artifact. For those who need a picture. I have some that I can email to you. Just send a picture request to my email address: browly_1987_2005@yahoo.com

Thanks,

S.A. Al

I do not think that we have any active members of the forum with specialised expertise in Bolivian textiles - I hope to be proved wrong!

I suggest that you visit one of the tribal textile shows to seek out relevant dealers. As you are USA-based you might look at the tribal textile fairs offered via http://www.caskeylees.com/ as a starter.

A useful book in my library is 'Bolivian Indian Textiles: Traditional Designs and Costumes' by Tamara E Wasserman and Johnathan S Hill.

A search of 'Bolivian Textiles' brought up http://www.tabwa.com/htm/bolivian_texti ... ry%201.htm with prices
http://www.stony-hill-madison.com/servl ... Categories

You will, of course, have done something similar....?

It would be good if you shared a photo of your textile by posting it on the forum. That is what this forum is all about - sharing information so that we may all learn.

Best wishes,
