Description

This stunning 'prayer rug' must rank as one of the finest knotted pieces I've ever handled. The rug comprises a 'tree-of-life' in the natural camel-hair field and the long flat-woven skirts are complete at each end. For the only other known example of this exceptional type, see page 83 in the published collection of Marvin & Frederica Amstey in 'Vanishing Jewels - Central Asian tribal Weavings' - a 1990 exhibition at the Rochester Museum & Science Centre.
Viewing by appointment only.
