Omg the rarity!
Not only the delicate lilac colour, nor the many medallion motifs emblazoning this glorious piece - but the silk on silk suzanis are almost non-existent today!
They are definitely dying breed. Which leads me to believe this suzani was very specifically made for the celebration of a precious occasion.
Given the rare colour, I'm doubtful it was a wedding. Perhaps, more likely, the birth of a child or children (probably girls)
Which makes me smile so much!
What a truly special piece.
What a glorious textile to have in your home. Perfect as wall art or used in a nursery, or just a precious, delicate statement piece in your home.

(Suzani's may have blemishes or colour runs as they are vintage pieces, usually used as hangings on the wall, as bed covers or as table cloths. This suzani however, is in pristine vintage condition)
