Item Ref



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. Reduced from 850 to 500 for quick sale.
Size: 1.07m x 1.07m (3' 6" x 3' 6").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: B13


Height = 107 cm (42")
Width = 107 cm (42")
Depth = 0 cm (0")
