Kaftan & Sandles Embrodery, Early 1900s Middle Eastern For Sale
This lovely antique Robe or Kaftan came from my great Aunt who took aMediterraneantrip in 1928. Also a pair of sandals thatappearto have never been used either. I do not know for certain, but I expect this waspurchasedon that trip. It is stunning with beautifulembroidery. Size is 38" wide, 50" long, 17" neck to end of sleeve, sleeve is 9" wide. The material to me is cotton and theembroideryhas a bold thread running in most of it. It is truly a work of art. As far as I know the robe has not been worn unless very long ago - it has simply been hanging in the back of the closet. I placed a white piece of material in the neck opening so you could see the beautifulembroideryaround the edges - brown with gold thread. The only flaw I can find is most likely original to the material. Look at picture 12 where the pen is pointed. Pictures 11 and 12 show the underside of thegarmentso you canappreciatethe beautiful underside of the work. I notice picture 8 has a shadow in it - the purpose is to illustrate the embroideryaroundthe bottom of the garment. Picture 11 also has a shadow. All but one picture was taken with the garment on the carpet. The Sandals also came from my aunt and seem to me to be the same age and type so I added them to the sale.
