Appraisal of the week:
This magnificent textile is a piece of a Turkman or Uzbek bride dowry (19th century).
It contains different segments which friends and family of the bride used to make a panel each, and at the end all the panels together turned to this gorgeous bed cover.
It has a linen back with silk stitching on the top.
