Fragment III - Vintage Turkish SaddleBagPasserine
ORIGIN: 1930s Turkish Saddle Bag Cover
FRAME DIMENSIONS: 18.5" x 18.5"
DESCRIPTION: This handmade fragment is one of 3 sections selected from a carefully-embellished saddle bag, meticulously preserved from 90 years ago. The bag faces (Fragments II and IV) feature nearly identical geometric embellishments, and middle section (Fragment III) displays a more spacious coordinating pattern with a slit that would have fit the bag on either side of the saddle’s horn. These pieces would be stunning on their own or in a trio (as depicted).
All rugs in the Passerine Fragments collection have been framed with quality and durability in mind. The frame is solid stained wood and features a museum-grade UV-filtering plexiglass to reduce risk of damage from shipping or prolonged sun exposure. Each fragment was hand-stitched to its acid-free linen backing.
