West Turkestan Tekke Main Rug

Mid 19th Century Central Asia, West Turkestan Tekke Main Carpet

This large Tekke main carpet, with five by twelve primary güls, chemche secondary motifs and pile-woven elems decorated with small flowering plants, is impressive in terms of its perfection of drawing as well as its outstanding quality. It is very fine in weave and has a thick velvety pile. Octagons filled with a cross are lined up in the main border which is accompanied by narrow gyak stripes. While the spaces between the octagons of the vertical bands only contain tiny stepped polygons, blossoms and triangles, the weaver used a box-shaped motif decorated with four white double hooks as a dividing design in the horizontal borders. – Very good condition.Size 218 x 326 cm
