    This large chuval displays a Salor design, but deviates in structure, presenting asymmetrical knots open to the right, no depression in the ground weave and a flexible handle. The palette is darker than usual in a Salor piece, and the ground colour of the field is a brown-red, allowing the conclusion that this chuval was woven in a different region than those of the so-called ‘S’ group. – New overcasting along the sides, reduced ends, the back is missing. Obvious signs of wear, low spots in the pile.

    At first glance, this rare chuval showing nine primary güls and erre secondary güls, as well as small shrubs placed in offset rows in the elem, appears to be a Yomut piece; however, the palette and knotting structure prove that is was woven by the Chodor. In 1980 it was published in the book on the Hoffmeister Collection as a loan. – Several restored creases, original upper finish, original selvedge on the left, reselvedged on the right, reduced at the bottom. The back is missing.

    Attribution to a specific tribe presents something of a mystery in this Turkmen trapping, woven in a long narrow format and previously published by Loges. Three large, diamond-shaped güls fill the dark brown field, and all eight secondary motifs are cut by the border. – Original sides, slightly reduced at the top and bottom, one repiled section.
