Turkey. Early to Mid-19th century
Silk velvet bindali with gold embroidery--dival work. 61½"across the shoulders; 52½"long. This dress has much more gracefully designed embroidery patterning than most of the later 19th century Turkish dresses. The embroidery is in very good condition, but most of the velvet pile has disappeared from the surface.
