The Old Bazaar

SOLD 

This is a very unusual and collectible piece made of a native coin metal alloy referred to as gillet. This tribal headdress was made for a young Turkoman bride. The "hat" part is solid gillet rather than the usual pieces sewn onto a suzani. With bezel set lapis lazuli and turquoise, this piece features embossed stylized metal plates soldered onto the base. The "tail" has pendants and medallions sewn onto vintage suzani fabric. There is sort of a decorated flower spike on top with dangles and bells. Black tassels with white beads complete this piece.
