    • Age18th century
    • Result EUR6,100
    A large Salor bag face showing 16 rounded chuval güls and octagonal secondary designs in a spacious arrangement which, in current opinion, is considered an indication of an early date. Unlike most comparative examples, the elem is decorated with amulets rather than tree forms. – Heavily worn, low pile. Mounted and framed.

  • Qashqa’i Rahimlu

    Add to wishlist
    • Lot157
    • OriginSouth West Persia, Fars
    • Dimensions308 x 161 cm
    • AgeLate 19th century
    • Result EUR6,710
    Judging by its flexible structure, this large Qashqa’i is probably a weaving of the Rahimlu tribe. This provenance is also suggested by the angular Herati design in the midnight blue field. However, the botehs seen in the yellow central medallion and the white-ground spandrels as well as the vine design of the main border have been drawn in the style of Kashkuli rugs. – Original finishes all around, good condition.
  • Qashqa’i Shekarlu

    • Lot159
    • OriginSouth West Persia, Fars
    • Dimensions259 x 172 cm
    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Result EUR10,004
    This Qashqa’i presenting the characteristic garden design of the Shekarlu tribe on a rust-red field stands out on account of its exceptional quality: it is more finely woven than usual in that provenance, resulting in a more detailed and precise drawing. Velvety pile wool, a rich variety of brilliant colours. Possibly commissioned by a khan. – New overcasting along the sides, several minor repairs. Good overall condition.
  • East Anatolian Long Rug

    • Lot161
    • OriginEast Anatolia
    • Dimensions240 x 87 cm
    • AgeSecond half 19th century
    • Result EUR3,660
    A red-ground Konya long rug displaying a highly unusual design of graphic appearance – large rosettes composed of colour segments, arranged in offset rows. Tiny solid crosses surround the motifs like a wreath. The border consists of a thin, dark blue line decorated with outer scrolled hooks. We are unaware of any comparative pieces. – Good condition.
    • Lot167
    • OriginCentral Asia, Uzbekistan
    • Dimensions118 x 84 cm
    • AgeEarly 20th century
    • Result EUR1,342
    Purple, pink, orange und light gray colour sections have been arranged into three bands and interlocked by means of deeply serrated outlines ending in sharp points. Woven in expressive colours, the composition appears dynamic, almost aggressive. Mounted, padded and framed.
    • Lot168
    • OriginCentral Asia, Uzbekistan
    • Dimensions118 x 84 cm
    • AgeEarly 20th century
    • Result EUR1,342
    A parallel piece to the previous lot produced from the same ikat fabric. Mounted, padded and framed.
    • Lot169
    • OriginCentral Asia, Uzbekistan
    • Dimensions68 x 27 cm
    • AgeSecond half 19th century
    • Result EUR610
    A lattice of bold cherry-red lines, running straight and intersecting diagonally, largely covers the white ground, leaving only narrow rhomboid and cone-shaped compartments. Viewed as a whole, it is possible to make out large arrow shapes in the picture. The straight lines and consistency of the abstract design are reminiscent of crystalline structures. Mounted and framed.
    • Lot170
    • OriginCentral Asia, Uzbekistan
    • Dimensions162 x 90 cm
    • AgeCa. 1900
    • Result EUR3,782
    Four interlocked light gray, pink and violet-red colour sections have been separated by wide, golden yellow bands. Despite the dynamic points extending horizontally, the composition appears rather sedate and static due to its clear structure. Mounted and framed.
  • The Herrmann Silk Ikat

    Add to wishlist
    • Lot174
    • OriginCentral Asia, Uzbekistan
    • Dimensions155 x 160 cm
    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Result EUR15,860
    This silk ikat in the format of a square cover has been composed of a number of fragments from the beginning. The abstract field design of circles woven in diverse colours appears decidedly modern to Western eyes, exercising a powerfully suggestive visual effect. Herrmann, who published the piece, dated it to the mid 19th century. Only a few complete covers of this kind have survived. The Munich Wolff-Diepenbrock Collection contains a fragment of identical field design. – Good condition.
