    Strongly abrashed in several tones, the camel field is undecorated except for tiny brocaded motifs that seem to be scattered at random. Halved hooked diamonds protrude into it from the sides, creating a serrated outline around the free space. The border design of reciprocal trefoils is typical of the Qashqa’i. The brilliant white sections are woven in cotton yarn. Purchased by the consignor at Galerie Neiriz, Berlin. – Very well preserved except for small repaired areas, original finishes all around.

    Like a desert island, a red spider gül lies at the centre of an empty white field decorated along the inner sides with small halved diamonds in different variations of colour. Very finely woven in colours of supreme quality, the kilim is a product of the Kashkuli tribe. It shows barely any signs of wear and was probably always treasured by the nomads. – Very good condition except for one small hole.

    The great age of this silk Heriz, owned by a German family for several generations, can be deduced from the degree of patination and the style of the design. All the devices are spaciously proportioned and powerful in expression. Two blue columns with massive bases, each crowned with an upside-down palmette rather than a capital, support the flat three-lobed arch at the upper end of the field. Two further columns are cut by the border. A flowering tree growing from a large bellied vase with handles at the lower end of the field ascends to the apex of the arch. – One small torn area in the upper right corner, otherwise in good condition, with the original finishes all around.

    An unusual Bijar from the Garrus district woven in the zaronim format. A symmetrical tree adorns the blue field; the white-ground main border contains an undulating flowering vine; and a green-ground additional design stripe at the upper end depicts the Persian lion with the sun and sword at its centre. There are several woven inscriptions and numbers. However, the latter probably do not represent dates, but have a meaning associated with Islamic religious numerology. – Very good condition.
