    One panel of a kilim originally woven in two panels in the wider Konya area, possibly a Hotamis Turkmen weaving. The spider-like medallion with widely extended arms and outlines hatched in different colours is a rare variation of the Turkmen kilim gül typically used by the Aydinli and Hotamis tribes. Very dense in weave and woven in marvellous colours, the kilim certainly dates before 1800. Two fragments in the McCoy Jones Collection could be parts of the other half of the same kilim. – Several missing sections, one end reduced.

    This small-format Sarkoy kilim has a green field in which red triangles form a basic design resembling scales. Four house-shaped devices superimposed on it in the corners are grouped around a central diamond composed of concentric colour rings. The blue-black border contains the triangular forms that are typical of these kilims, and may be interpreted as highly abstract representations of animals. A very finely woven piece in a classic palette. – Good condition.

    Half of a kilim originally in two panels. Drawn with great precision, the colourful design in the white field consists of nine horizontal cartouches superimposed on a central row of small interconnected diamonds. The same diamonds and their connecting motifs are seen as a continuous pole design along the inner side opposite the border. The dark brown border contains double hooks in diverse colours. The kilim was probably woven in the area west of Isparta. Brüggemann assumes that the memorable design of this kilim group derives from Lotto carpets. – Good condition.

    This small kilim presenting an undecorated, narrow red field surrounded by three wide borders was made in the surroundings of Obruk, a town situated east of Konya. Its colours are strikingly vivid and brilliant. The weaver took great care in slightly modifying the few motifs of the design through repeated use of colour change and embroidered outlines. The zip-fastener style outlines of the borders are a typical stylistic feature of small-format Obruk kilims. While most of these kilims represent the niche type (example: lot 175 in our auction no. 85), the Poppmeier piece belongs to a rare sub-group woven without niches. – Slight damage to the lower finish, otherwise in very good condition.

    Half of a white-ground kilim originally woven in two panels by the Aydinli tribe. The hexagonal medallions placed on the central axis are framed in the typical fashion by wide, polychrome striped bands containing horizontal hooks. The lateral sections of the field not covered by the main design show a dense basic pattern of geometric figures and stylised animals. The powerful formal language and brilliant colours distinguish this early example from later pieces of the group. – Several missing sections, mounted onto canvas.

    A white-ground kilim displaying large elibelinde figures divided in two. This distinctive motif symbolising fertility and protection is frequently encountered in Anatolian kilims. It has been interpreted as a representation of a Neolithic mother goddess by some authors. A common feature shared by all kilims of this specific group, assumed to originate in the Sivrihisar region, is the strikingly mellow palette of subtle pastel shades which distinguishes it from examples of the same design woven in other areas, such as the Konya region. – Rewoven long sides, otherwise well preserved.

    A fragment of a kilim of the Sivrihisar group. The surviving section comprises the elem, woven in a horizontal stripe design and embellished with reciprocal triangles, and part of the field which contains a large green double niche medallion with parmakli outlines. The dark brown shapes along the sides are decorated with further parmakli outlines. The S-shaped devices above the medallion represent abstract animals. The white ground of the field is woven from cotton. – Several missing sections. Backed with canvas and mounted onto a wooden frame.

    This small fragment is woven in a design of horizontal stripes of varying widths which contain reciprocal triangles and stepped polygons enclosing small central cross devices. The clear lines of its perfectly proportioned composition and the gorgeous palette are impressive features. It creates the impression of being very old. – Various missing sections, mounted onto a brown felt.

    Large elibelinde designs in brilliant and diverse colours, closely spaced in offset horizontal rows, combine into an expressive tile design in the brown-ground field of this long single-panel kilim. The orange-ground border is decorated with double hooks while the wide white elems contain large geometric figures composed of two opposing hooked triangles. Two further examples of this specific type have been published. – Several rewoven sections, good overall condition.

    We are uncertain whether this finely woven, single-panel kilim in the colours of Yüncü weavings actually is a Yüncü tribal piece, thus our appellation is based on the place of origin which is considered certain. A wide, dark blue vertical bar placed at the centre of the red field is decorated with the same design of stylised carnations that also adorns the border. The red sections of the field are embroidered with several small S-forms – ancient apotropaic symbols. – Good condition.
