  • Keçimuhsine Cicim

    • Lot33
    • OriginCentral Anatolia, Konya
    • Dimensions147 x 116 cm
    • Ageca. 1900
    • Estimate EUR1,200 - 1,500

    This group of closely related flatweaves is well documented in literature. Produced in the village of Keçimuhsine, they were used in homes as curtains covering wall niches and hung in the opposite direction of the ascending design. All the motifs have been embroidered in the brocading technique onto a tabby foundation woven from ivory wool. Two flat stepped gables extend across the entire width of the field; parts of a third gable at the upper end of the field prove that the design is an endless repeat. The ground is filled with rows of tiny botehs arranged in colour diagonals. The composition is strictly symmetrical, and the stepped gables lend it an ascending movement. Each gable is topped with a Y-form bearing a cypress. This tree is considered a symbol of eternal life in Anatolia and encountered in many Turkish cemeteries. In rugs and flatweaves the cypress is a transitional symbol. – Very good condition, original finishes all around.

    • Lot34
    • OriginCentral Anatolia
    • Dimensions106 x 59 cm
    • Agemid 19th century
    • Estimate EUR700 - 800

    In the red field, two light blue hexagons with a large cross as their interior motif are linked by a pole. The hooks attached to the outer sides of the hexagons are aligned with the hooks of the motifs in the corners and at the sides. The yellow border contains an angular vine decorated with flowers in the Ladik style, suggesting that the yastik was woven in that region. – Signs of age and wear, damaged sides; a section of the typical Central Anatolian finish of small shield forms survives at the bottom.

    • Ageca. 1800
    • Estimate EUR3,500 - 4,500

    Woven in a single piece, this large white-ground kilim is from one of the villages in the Karapinar area. Its design consists of four huge "baklava" devices placed within panels separated by horizontal borders. The lateral spaces not covered by the primary motifs contain hooked diamonds and halved elibelinde motifs. The kilim resembles an example published by Koll in terms of its comparatively dark colours and similar horizontal border design. – Obvious signs of age and wear, various missing sections, mounted onto canvas.

    • Lot39
    • OriginSouth Caucasus, Azerbaijan
    • Dimensions226 x 151 cm
    • Agelate 19th century
    • Estimate EUR2,500 - 3,000

    This red-ground decorative cover with a brocaded design, woven in the tabby technique on a red warp, hails from the southern Caucasus, probably Karabagh. The field shows a chequerboard composition of 24 compartments that distinctly diminish in size towards the top. Eight compartments are empty spaces while 14 compartments contain animals. The wide panel composed of several borders added only on the right-hand side is an unusual feature, creating a strikingly asymmetrical appearance. We are not aware of any comparable examples. – A number of rewoven areas in the field, good overall condition.
