Antique Turkmen Main Carpet, Teke Tribes, Turkmenistan, Central Asia.



Item Ref



A magnificent main yurt carpet made by Teke Turkmen tribes during the third quarter 19th century. The glowing madder-red is just to die for (excuse the pun) and the carpet is in excellent overall condition with stunning elems (skirts). The weave is as fine as they get as can be seen in the close-up photo and all I can add is that the weaver was obviously at the very height of her weaving ability.
Size: 2.81 x 2.24m (9' 3" x 7' 4").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/FL


Height = 281 cm (111")
Width = 224 cm (88")
