Item Ref



Dizlyks were made by the young Turkmen bride to decorate her wedding camel when her 'big day' arrived!
Each dizlyk was tied around the knobbly knees of the wedding camel during the bridal procession and then stored away in a 'bokcha' (wedding chest) until her daughter was ready for marriage.
Made during the second half of the nineteenth century by Yomut tribes in the trans-Caspian Steppes, these beautiful and rare pair of dizlyks are in excellent condition with a beautiful use of green, albeit having lost their hanging cords.
Today, such dizlyks can look very decorative hung on the wall asnd certainly make a very good talking point with friends.
Size: 22cm x 40cm (9" x 1' 4") including tassels.
Viewing by appointment only.
