Suzani fragment, silk embroidery, Bukhara, Uzbekistan, mid-19th century.
A fragment from a Safavid carpet that is found in the Walters Art Museum. It dates to around Jalali year 1015, and it was created, probably in Isfahan or Kashan, with silk pile and silk warp, silk and cotton weft, and metallic brocading. The curators at the Walters comment, ‘This brightly colored fragment comes from [a] corner of a famous type of Persian carpet with large floral designs, traditionally called Polonaise … Such carpets were very popular in Europe during the first half of the 17th century. They were often ordered or acquired in pairs from Iran. Shah Abbas (reigned 1587-1629), the Iranian ruler who established Isfahan as his capital, sent a carpet of this type to the doge, or ruler, of Venice as a present in 1603.’
