    • OriginCentral Asia, West Turkestan

    • AgeEarly 19th century
    • Estimate EUR12,000
    At a first glance, the field design of this very rare torba – twelve flat Memling güls and large diamond-shaped secondary güls called "sagdak" by the Turkmen – might suggest a Salor weaving. Three Salor torbas woven in the same design were exhibited at Schloss Aschach in 2012. However, the knotting structure, type of wool and palette clearly indicate that the torba is attributable to the Tekke. – Minimal signs of age and wear, slight moth damage, small repairs. Very good overall condition, with the original finishes all around and the kilim back.
