Why this is a
Masterpiece

Any ancient garments preserved till contemporary times are unique and a real rarity (except of the sultan’s garments stored in a treasury in Top Kapi Saray in Istanbul). For researchers they make a subject of study on account of the fabric and the old style. Predominantly the old fashion is known from paintings. Many Turkish miniatures present the court scenes or the figures of noble people resembling the portraits. The “Warsaw Turkish dress” could be considered as a comparative article with the painting in many aspects.

Function
A woman’s low cut dress with long sleeves pointed with broad and cut cuffs. It has a fitted bodice, a flared skirt and two deep pockets. The dress is buttoned under a low cut neck with a series of small buttons. The hem is trimmed with an edge. This luxury dress was sewn with brocade presenting a decoration in multicoloured stripes filled with flower and leaf motifs. The embroidery, in the form of the palmettes, adorn the sleeves over the cuffs. The dress bears marks of some reshaping. There is probably patching on the skirt in the front part; trimming with an edge; and narrowing creases at the waist.
