Antique Ottoman Afyon Gold Braiding Embroidery Cepken / size 36038

350.00

Beautiful and wearable antique Ottoman black velvet cepken (jehp-ken) bolero jacket.

Mixed-technique embroidery in a design typical of Central Anatolia’s Konya/Afyon. I have several similar pieces avaiable.

This piece has birds, florals, and minaret motifs couched braiding and other embroidery in gold braiding and pastel colors.

Lined in pale salmon red cotton. Some watermarking on lining (see photos). Cepken otherwise is in excellent condition commensurate with age.

Worn with an antique Ottoman silk sash with metallic fringe edge and Olive in the Moonlight blockprinted silk sarong. The 100-year beautiful sash is from Sille, a once-Greek village outside Konya famous for its woven silks.
