Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me with some additional information re the two shawls, photos attached below. When I purchased these pieces I was told that they were Uzbek, I purchased them as they were reasonably priced and had never seen this type of silk tie/dyed cloths before except for the Pelangi from Sumatra. I have since tried to find more information about them but cant find anything in any of the textile books without any success. Has anyone seen anything like this before, they are very beautiful coloured using very fine silk. They are 42" x 57" and 56" x "93" respectively, so quite large. They are supposedly both from the 1940/50s. Any info would be gratefully appreciated.

Michelle,

Can you post larger size images please - up to 600 px wide - as it is very difficult to make out the textiles from these thumbnail images.

Many thanks

Sorry for the tiny photos before, here are some larger ones which might help in identifying the pieces

Hi Michelle-
I cannot vouch for the veracity of the information, but a dealer on Rug Rabbit has a similar piece and also attributes it to Uzbekistan, with a date of "around 1900 (possibly earlier)". They say they were used as a scarf. Here's the link: http://rugrabbit.com/Item/gorgeous-antique-uzbek-tie-dyed-silk-panel-beautiful-textile-dates-around-1900-possibly-earlier.

I just checked Jack Lenor Larsen's book The Dyer's Art, and on pages 54-55 he shows two examples and calls them large plangi scarves from Bukhara.

Hope this helps a little!

Thanks Susan, so they could be Uzbek, I dont have the book you mention, so is good to know that they are documented, would be interesting if they are pre 1900s. I am thinking of travelling to Uzbekistan in a couple of weeks (though not Bukhara, probably Khiva) so might take one with me and ask around.
