    • OriginSouth East Anatolia
    • Dimensions311 x 106 cm
    • AgeSecond half 19th century
    • Estimate EUR3,000
    Five sets of large nested diamonds with hooked outlines take up the whole of the field of this Kurdish rug. They lie on a ground which is orange at first, then changes to apricot and turns a light red-orange at the upper end. Nested hooked diamonds are offset against them and cut by the border, appearing as halved forms which fill all the spaces not covered by the main design. The stepped polygons of the border are strikingly different in size and interior drawing. The colours derive their singular brilliance from the lustrous wool. – The lateral edges have been restored in places, original kilim finishes. Very good overall condition.

    Published by Herrmann as early as 1984, this red-ground village rug from the Bergama region features a central medallion in the shape of a huge diagonal cross and halved diamond medallions at the ends of the field. This memorable design harks back to Ushak models, such as the Ushak from the Graf Dönhoff Collection sold by us in 1991. A further example of this rare group was formerly in the McMullan Collection and is now in the Metropolitan Museum, New York. – Signs of age and wear, low pile, heavily corroded brown. The original selvedges survive, both ends slightly reduced.

    • Lot36
    • OriginNorth West Persia, Kurdistan
    • Dimensions270 x 153 cm
    • AgeCa. 1900
    • Estimate EUR1,800
    A coarsely woven village kilim from the Kurdish area surrounding Bijar. In the uniformly blue field, a huge shield form encloses a completely empty, central shield medallion only defined by its white outlines; small stepped polygons in diverse colours are distributed around it in a mosaic pattern. Like the central motif, the spandrels are empty blue triangles. The particular effect of this cheerful kilim results from the appealing contrast between the undecorated and densely patterned spaces. – Very good condition.
