Woman's Paranja. Uzbekistan, c.2nd quarter 20th century. This elegant paranja is made of silk taffeta. This lustrous fabric appears mauve and bronze depending on the light. Fully lined with printed cotton in a traditional paisley pattern and an unusual Japanese-inspired design. The trim is hand-embroidered with tiny cross-stitches. It was no doubts worn by a well-to-do woman on special occasions. (The Uzbek woman in the archival photo from about 1910, is posing in her best paranja with her horsehair face veil thrown back over her head.) Excellent condition with only one small stain on the lining. Fabric is strong throughout. 50" length shoulder to hem; the false sleeves are 43" long.
