Early 20th Century Colorful Central Asian Quilted Beaded Hat



Early 20th century Central Asian quilted silk satin hat, probably Uzbekistan, decorated with a needlework brim and tail. The body of the hat and tail are embellished with beaded silk tassels adding movement to the design. The colorful pattern of the fabric includes shades of yellow, fuchsia and purple on a silvery white background accented by black. The needlework and tassels are in shades of saffron, green, teal green, burgundy, orange, fire engine red and aqua blue. The interior is lined in a quilted purple cotton. Magnificent! This special piece is from the estate and private collection of Peggy Slappey, a well traveled lady who passionately collected textile art from Central Asia. Part of Ms. Slappey's extensive collection was exhibited in 2016 at the Birmingham Museum of Art. Additional items from the curated collection are available on the Modern & Moore homepage. CONDITION Very good condition considering the age with some signs of use and storage including subtle discolorations and some loose threading to the quilted pattern. MEASUREMENTS The inside rim of the hat measures 21" circumference. The rimless brim has a 3.25" rise with 7" to the center. The tail is 9.5" long including the tassel x 2" wide. Overall, when looking at the top of the hat, it measures approximately 7.5" diameter.
