Description

This fabulous Yomut Turkmen carpet was made in the third quarter of the 19th century in the Middle Amu Darya region of Turkmenistan. The beautiful copper-red field contains superbly-drawn 'dyrnak' guls (tribal crests) which appear to disappear under the rare main border and out into infinity. Look at the 'elems' or skirts at each end of the carpet with their beautifully depicted trees. A superb example of the lost woven art of the Turkmen.
Size: 2.90m x 1.78m (9' 6" x 5' 10").
Viewing by appointment only.
