Uzbekistan, c.1900

Length of roller-printed cotton 86” x 22.5”

Right selvedge intact

Produced in Russia for export to Central Asia

Good used condition except for scattered stains

It looks like this fabric was used as a backing for a large wall hanging.

 

This pattern is evocative of French home furnishing designs at a time when faux warp prints were popular. While Russian export cloth to Central Asia often depicted faux-ikat patterns in imitation of hand-woven Uzbek ikats, this fabric is imitating European machine-woven warp prints with a decidedly Western look.  An interesting twist.

The first two images show the fabric folded in half with each side visible.
