    A very old and ethnologicaly interesting Kazak, with a number of decorative elements scattered at random across a green met hane field abrashed in several tones, as well as an extra wide, white-ground main border. The form seen at the upper end of the field could be interpreted as a date, but probably constitutes an abstract four-legged animal. The structure, with salmon wefts, is an indication of the age of the rug. – The original finishes, and probably the outermost border, are missing all around. Several repiled sections, two stitched tears in the left-hand border area, low pile.

    This rare Tekke main carpet formerly belonged to the Robert Pinner Collection. It is one of the few surviving examples with a white-ground main border. Its design of serrated ashik güls and a rectilinear double vine is modelled on Yomut weavings. – Original selvedges and remnants of kilims at both ends. Obvious signs of age and wear, low spots in the pile.
    • Lot109
    • OriginSouth West Persia, Fars
    • Dimensions274 x 150 cm
    • AgeSecond half 19th century
    • Estimate EUR12,000
    The main border design of this Qashqa’i, finely knotted and with a flexible structure (purple silk wefts), suggests that it may be a product of the Kashkuli tribe, but possibly it is a Shishboluki weaving. It is often difficult to attribute weavings made for the bazaar to a precise Qashqa’i tribe. The designs seen in nomad rugs from Fars often go back to West Persian models. Here, the weaver appears to have been guided by a Farahan with a Herati design. – Very good condition. Original finishes all around, with the ivory warp ends tied off into braids.
    • Lot110
    • OriginSouth West Persia, Fars region
    • Dimensions161 x 92 cm

    • Estimate EUR3,600
    The white field of this small-format Khamseh contains a repeat of huge botehs of the mother & child type, arranged into rows of three and alternating direction with each row. Popular with the Khamseh nomads, the design goes back to East Persian models. The palmette vine on a blue ground is rarely seen in this type. – The original selvedges have been preserved, but are damaged on the right-hand side. The red kilim finish survives at the top, the lower end is somewhat reduced. Signs of wear in the pile.
