    The Swedish word "täcke" means “blanket”, and thus describes the purpose of this beautiful flatweave made in Rollakan technique (the Swedish word for a kilim using this interlocked weft weaving technique) in a southern Swedish farming household. The strictly symmetrical design of twelve white octagons outlined in brown and enclosing a cruciform motif, and quartered diamonds linked by a lattice of yellow lines, has been placed on a pastel green ground. The blanket is finished off at each end with a wide horizontal band showing a colourful zig-zag design. – Very good condition.

    A dark blue rectangle containing human and animal figures has been placed at the centre of a yellow field densely covered in small botehs. Four tiny human figures have been included in the field design at the sides, two horsemen are integrated into the star border. Dated 1247 (= 1832 AD), this carpet, probably made in Daghestan, represents a period of Caucasian pile-weaving of which little is known as only a small number of examples survive, thus it constitutes an important reference piece. – Heavy damage due to age, reduced ends, darned areas.
    • LotA75/1

    This large Salor trapping showing two davarza güls and the kejebe design is one of the oldest surviving pieces of its kind. It is datable to the 18th century or possibly earlier. The composition appears more spacious than that of other well-known examples (such as the Coury and Wiedersperg Salors), the davarza güls have a more distinctly vertical orientation than usual, and the eight characteristic cone shapes placed inside the latter are concentrically aligned towards the gül centre rather than being arranged in parallel lines, as seen in most other pieces. Another Salor trapping displaying the same features was published by Neugebauer and Orendi in 1909. Cut all around, parts of the border and the elem panel are missing. Heavily damaged, the pile is worn away.

    • OriginChina
    • Dimensionsa = 29 x 61 cm, b = 28 x 56 cm, c = 29 x 62 cm
    • AgeLate 19th century
    • Estimate EUR1,000
    Three Chinese rank badges, each consisting of the front and back. The small, square, silk and gold thread embroideries show representations of different animals: a leopard, water buffalo, and crane, corresponding to the status of the dignitary to whose robe they were attached on the front and back. Such embroideries, also called "Mandarin squares" in literature, served to demonstrate the respective official’s rank. Made in pairs, they were sewn to the chest and back of robes worn by mandarins over their garments. The use of rank badges began under Mongol rule in the 13th century and ended in 1911. – All three pieces are backed with black fabric and framed like pictures. Good condition.
