Vintage Embroidered Velvet Dress from Afghanistan

Regular price £400.00

A beautiful old velvet dress from Afghanistan with embroidered details.

There is vibrant geometric red and gold embroidery on the bodice of this dress and a similar sized embroidered panel in magenta and violet on the back. 
This is set against a heavy burgundy coloured velvet. The sleeves and hem are decorated with elaborate patterns of gold braid.

Probably from the Persian side of Afghanistan, possibly from the Herat region.

Mid 20th century, part of a collection we assembled in the 1970's.
