Turkmen spindle-bags were used, as the name implies, for containing wooden spindles.
This one is a good early example of the type, probably made around 1860-1870 by Yomut Turkmen in the Trans-Caspian Steppes. The design in the central field represents the totemic tree, which the Shaman will climb to communicate with the great Gods in the sky. The wool is soft and the bag is complete with its original plain-weave, undyed wool back.
Size: 40cm x 20cm (1' 4" x 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
