This Suzani was embroidered in Uzbekistan during the 3rd quarter of the 20th century.
It features a row of large rosettes which are constructed of smaller rosettes in blue, yellow, white, and navy on a bright red field. A black stitched border and blue fringe can be found surrounding its entire perimeter.
It has been crafted in an uncommon banner length format. The words "welcome honored guests" have been embroidered in Cyrillic characters but in the Uzbek language leading us to believe this was created for a special occasion, maybe a wedding or to commemorate a visit to the village by officials or other guests.
In good condition, it has a hole in the bottom right corner (pictured), a few small stains, and other wear that is consistent with age.
