    In this gorgeous Qashqa’i kilim, the tile-like design of 32 rectangles outlined in fine lateral sawteeth is spaced so widely that the undecorated sections of the white ground assume the role of a wide grid. The distribution of colours in the empty compartments has produced a scheme of diagonal bands. The grid is decorated with small stepped polygons. Purchased by the consignor at Galerie Neiriz, Berlin. – Very good condition.

    A large, brown-ground kilim woven by the Khalaj tribes. Ever since their resettlement by Karim Khan Zand in 1790, they have lived in a region fifty kilometres south of Saveh accordingly named Khalajistan. The dense repeat consists of large, interlocked, serrated diamonds which are deeply incised at the sides. Their outlines are accentuated by embroidery. The design shows notable similarities to the parmakli kilims woven in the Afyon region of West Anatolia. A collector’s piece of great appeal in terms of graphic effect and colour. Purchased by the consignor at Galerie Neiriz, Berlin. – Well preserved, original finishes all around, mounted onto canvas.
