Regina Knaller: A Group of Central Asian woolen Textiles in the Abegg-Stiftung Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: Tapestry weavings with figurative patterns, mostly stylised depictions of animals, form the majority of a group of 46 central Asian woolen textiles in the Abegg-Stiftung, apart from some braided fabrics and cloth. Following a historical introduction each piece is extensively described and compared to other pieces that are grouped together in the catalogue section. The results of technical analyses are shown in a table. The possibilities for conservation as well as methods used for cleaning and stabilisation were tested on four sample fragments. Together with a series of experiments they offer valuable clues for the conservation of the entire group. A summary presents an overview of the results and information gained from the project.
