Description

Wedding rugs were, as the name implies, made for the bride and groom to stand on at their wedding ceremony and take their marriage vows. These rugs were never intended for sale but kept in the 'bukcha' (dowry bag) for the rest of their married lives. This little rug was made by Teke tribes at the end of the 19th century - possibly around 1900 - and bar a few minor repairs, it is in very good condition.
Size: 1.07m x 1.07m (3' 6" x 3' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/K1
