Antique Turkmen Chapan 1890's collector's item

A unique turkmen chapan dating from the late nineteenth century. Handstitched striped silk with typical central asian embroidery, and a russian cotton lining (added more recently) what makes this coat so special is the silver embellishment. 19 silver discs adorn the back and 24 domed'zamzam' beads and cowrie shells decorate the front panels. Some tears to the silk fabric and bleeding of the dye commensurate with age and reflected in the price.
