Topic: What Type of Turkmen is This?

This photo was posted in the Pictures for Discussion area of the Kazbah by a reader who wants to know what "type of Turkmen" it is.

The reader who posted this added that he/she felt it was circa "1900".

We'd offer that it is probably somewhat older than that but not much. Also that is is probably a late example of genuine "Beshir" work.

We have left the larger, higher resolution photo they posted in the Kazbah and we would advise anyone who would like to offer their opinion to be sure to view it, as the lesser motifs used are far more easily identified there.
