Museum Inventory Number:

T 883

Material(s) / Technique(s):

Silk, gilt membrane strip

Provenance:

Central Asia

Description:

This fragment came into the MAK textile collection through a purchase of textiles negotiated by the Aachen Canon Franz Bock in 1865. Beforehand, it was part of the so called Heinrichsgewänder (vestments) in the Alte Kapelle chapel in Regensburg. The longitudinal, variously wide stripes detectable on the fragment, its interior structuring with rectangular fields and different patterning of the latter, lend credence to a provenance from Central Asia.
