    The large size of this Chodor and its precise execution suggest that it was made on commission. A repeat of ertmen güls arranged in colour diagonals densely covers the aubergine-ground field; the serrated diagonal bands which are typical of the provenance have been inserted between them. A hooked Turkmen wavy vine undulates around ashik güls in the white main border, and the piled elems are embellished with rows of small ashik motifs arranged in colour diagonals. – Replaced selvedges, signs of wear in the pile, various minor repiled sections.

    • Lot226
    • OriginNorth East Persia, Khorasan
    • Dimensions138 x 77 cm
    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Estimate EUR950
    Extremely fine in weave, this early prayer rug from the Torbat-e-Haydari region has a camel field with a tree-of-life design and a box-shaped mihrab flanked by two shrubs. The trunk of the tree of life is drawn more boldly than usual and appears like a pillar. In contrast, the seven branches ending in a star-shaped blossoms growing from it at an angle are thin and delicate. Plants and animals greatly reduced in scale complete the main design. Possibly a weaving by the Jan Beghi tribe. – Good condition, the kilim finishes survive, minimal damage along the edges.

    • Dimensions190 x 112 cm
    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Estimate EUR1,800
    This finely woven rug with a field abrashed in several shades and an orange-ground border is an Armenian piece from Cilicia, made in Antep in the area bordering Syria. Four large cross devices with a cruciform interior drawing centred on a Talish rosette are aligned on the central axis of the field and each flanked by four lateral hooked triangles. Rugs of very similar design were also woven by Kurdish tribes in the Gaziantep region. – Signs of age and wear, low spots in the pile. Cut sides, reselvedged, three repiled areas. The flatwoven finishes have survived at both ends.

  • Hotamis Kilim Fragment

    • Lot230
    • OriginCentral Anatolia, Karapinar region
    • Dimensions202 x 71 cm
    • AgePre 1800
    • Estimate EUR950
    This fragment is part of the field of an early Hotamis kilim whose reddish-brown central section was decorated with hexagons and funnel shapes. The kilim may have been similar in composition to an example in the Poppmeier Collection so it, too, would have had densely patterned sections at both ends. The very beautiful palette and fine weave are certain indications of age. – Major missing areas, mounted onto canvas.
