Very good condition – no tassels are missing and most are completely intact; some need the upper green wrapping cord rewound.

 

Segusha, or saye gosha, are V-shaped embroideries used to embellish the bedding stack (chuk). They were usually part of a larger piece of cloth that was laid between the quilts with the decorative embroidery hanging down in front. With time, the plain cotton or wool cloth (red was the preferred color) was often discarded and only the embroidery retained.

This is an attractive segusha on its own, however it offers a creative sewer the chance to utilize some terrific handmade tassels; the lovely embroidered narrow band; and the main V-shaped embroidery.
