The Chuval in Turkmen vocabulary was the bedding bag for transporting personal belongings on the camels and pack animals. This Chuval has lost its flatwoven back but retains, in excellent condition, its beautiful finely knotted-pile face incorporating 9 Sariq Turkmen guls (crests). Made around 1900, the red field is probably derived from cochineal (insect dye). What a steal at 950!!!
Size: 1.49m x 0.81m (4' 11" x 2' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: JT9
