Belt from Bukhara with Turquoise Mosaic
Origin: Bukhara, Uzbekistan
Date: Late 19C.
A beautiful and intriguing decoration technique in Bukharin decorative arts is the Turquoise mosaic. Many small fragments of Turquoise stones are set in brass or silver frames. This technique is applied to many decorative arts implements: Jewelry boxes, belts and buckles, umbrella handles as well as swords and daggers mounts.
A good example to this technique is the belt offered here, comprised of eight silver medallions and two halves of the buckle inlaid with turquoise tiles to form a dense mosaic, sawn on velvet wide belt.
Length of belt 33 inches. Width 2 1/2 inches. Very good condition. Authentic, late 19 C. The fabric belt is later.
