The Bernheimer Garden Carpet Fragment Lot: 5
The Bernheimer Garden Carpet Fragment This famous fragment, formerly in the Bernheimer Collection, consists of sections from the border area of a garden carpet that was probably once very large; they have been joined to produce a harmonious overall picture. The midnight blue ground now shows an alternating arrangement of opposing cypresses and shrubs with birds sitting on their tops. The white-ground border displays a spaciously conceived vine of cruciform flowers, palmettes and sickle leaves. It appears that no other fragments of this carpet have survived. Obvious signs of age and wear, old repairs.

Mahal Lot: 7
Mahal This large red-ground carpet, with a spaciously conceived repeat of palmettes, rosettes, sickle leaves, blossoms and thin twigs as well as a green-ground Herati border, was made at the same time as the Ziegler carpets produced in the same area, Sultanabad and its environs. While the Ziegler carpets pieces produced in strictly controlled workshop conditions are finely woven and show precisely drawn designs, this carpet is a typical Mahal of coarse weave. Obvious signs of age and wear, slightly damaged but original sides.

Kecimuhsine Flatweave Lot: 13
Kecimuhsine Flatweave A white-ground flatweave with a brocaded design. Wide, angular arches decorated with a double hook and cypresses lie on a ground hermetically covered in tiny botehs. Balpinar has examined such flatweaves, made in the Central Anatolian village of Kecimuhsine, establishing in her field work that they were not only prayer rugs, but also served as curtains hung before alcoves. The symbolism of the design is supposed to be associated with religious ideas of the Qadiri and Nakshibendi Sufi orders. Good condition.
