ANTIQUE SPOON HOLDER

SKU: AR113
$2,950.00Price

 

 

This beautiful artifact was woven by a very skilled weaver in the Western part of Caucasus as a prized work of art to show off during special events by the weaver.  

It is woven with mostly horsehair and dyed with pure vegetable dyes and insect dyes (the red).

It is a highly collectible item that came from the late Josephine Powell's collection.

Here is the history of her:

"Josephine Powell was invited to Istanbul in 1955 by art historian David Talbot Rice to photograph the ancient Byzantine mosaics of the Grand Palace. Having finished her work in Istanbul, she traveled east – the first foreigner to be given permission to drive across the country after the foundation of the republic. Friends warned her of the perils of traveling on her own, but she found only courtesy: “People treated me better than I had ever been treated,” she told Andrew Finkel in an article in Cornucopia magazine, three years before her death. “They invited me into their houses, fed me, found me somewhere to sleep … It was never dangerous to me.”

She became interested in Turkish flat-woven textiles. She set out to work with the Turkish nomads themselves, gathering information about their handicraft and become a collector, not only of the patterns in the kilims but kilims themselves."
