Description

The 'germech' was made as the panel to go underneath the engsi (door rug) at the entrance to the Turkmen yurt. Few germech are found complete these days - in actual fact, germech are rare.
This stunning germech was made by Ersary Turkmen nomads during the last quarter of the 19th century. What is amazing about this piece, is that it is absolutely complete with tasselled lower skirt and complete braided cords for tying the germech to the yurt struts. The inner field design is unusual as is the main border with its Turkmen 'tree' pattern - more akin to the designs of the Sariq Turkmen. In mint condition, this is a truly wonderful piece of nomadic art!
1.20m x 0.50m (4' 0" x 1' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
