    This unusually large Shirvan kilim shows a dense design of horizontal bands which vary in width and ornamentation. They are separated by monochrome dividing stripes in blue, red, green and dark brown. The sharp, comb-like serrations at the long sides are a typical feature of these kilims which were always woven without borders. Finely woven, superb colours. – Very good condition except for minimal damage along the edges.

    A repeat of small carnations is arranged in offset rows in the dark red field of this small-format village rug. Due to the distribution of colours, the blossoms combine into an overall design of concentric diamonds, with a large white diamond extending across the field as the dominant motif. – Minor repairs, the selvedges are repaired in places. Good condition, the pile survives at its original height, original kilim finishes.

    This two-panel kilim woven in a distinctive design and a specific palette is from the village of Yesilova. In the aubergine-ground field, six shield medallions decorated with arrows at their tips are vertically arranged in pairs. They each enclose a smaller, analogous form in the ground colour of the field which is open at the sides; as a result, the large devices appear as if composed of two halves. The orange-ground inner border shows a design of hooked diamonds and small S-forms, while the blue outer border contains a row of geometric, abstract ram figures. – Good condition.

    The field design of large, alternately red- or blue-ground square forms, each containing a powerful cross device decorated with four arrows, belonged to the standard repertoire of the East Anatolian Kurds. The dominant device, a large arrow gül design, may have been a kind of tribal gül, although similar designs also occur in Shahsavan bag faces from Azerbaijan. The border of hooked stepped polygons drawn on an apricot ground is a distinctive feature of this rug group. – Signs of age and wear, replaced selvedges. Small missing areas, holes and tears. A number of old repiled sections which differ in colour. Original upper finish, somewhat reduced at the bottom.

    In the apricot field, very beautifully drawn elibelinde designs in dark red and blue combine into a repeat of steep colour diagonals. The wide, dark red main border contains large blossoms in the horizontal bands and diagonal crosses composed of S-motifs in the vertical bands. A further example of this very rare group of Konya village rugs was selected by Brüggemann & Böhmer as the cover illustration of the book on the 1980 Frankfurt exhibition. The design harks back to older predecessors, such as a carpet in the Vakiflar Museum, Istanbul (inv. no. 130) and an even older example in the Türk ve Islam Eserleri Museum, Istanbul (inv. no. 350). – The upper left corner is missing, otherwise well preserved with a high pile.
