Old Uzbek Tribal Hat

This is a beautiful old hat, circa 1950's, from Termez in Southern Uzbekistan. The hat is completely handmade, formed from heavy cotton material with a few highlights of silver thread on the top. This type of hat is common in the Afghan border area of Uzbekistan. There is some wear to the hat, as can be expected, but it is a wonderful piece, whether displayed or worn!

Measurements: approx. 20" in circumference
