    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Estimate EUR200
    The amulet motif known as aina kochak, placed within a compartment quartered by colour change, was particularly popular among the Tekke in the 19th century. Almost always it is incorporated into a grid and used as a hermetic repeat in bag faces of all sizes, sometimes even small rugs. In this mafrash, the rich glow of the vibrant colours, the precious pile material and the extremely fine weave are striking qualities. The use of white cotton for the kochak outlines is a characteristic feature. – Both sides somewhat reduced and reselvedged. Original upper finish; the ivory kilim has been folded back at the bottom. Good overall condition, with the pile at its original height.

    • Lot210
    • OriginSouth East Caucasus
    • Dimensions269 x 117 cm
    • AgeSecond half 19th century
    • Estimate EUR4,800
    Five large, seemingly winged medallions are aligned on the central axis of the dark blue field; stars, blossoms and protective symbols are distributed around them. The outer side of the field is surrounded by a chain of stepped polygons. The stepped polygons lined up in the main border are a common border design of Talish rugs. In this item they have been elaborately embellished with minute details. A comparative piece in the Armenian Museum of Yerevan woven at a later date proves that the design was also known in the Karabagh region. A fine weave, brilliant colours. – Very good condition, original finishes all around, slightly corroded brown.
