    Woven in a single piece, this white-ground double niche kilim displays a strikingly rare composition: the four large double niches enclosing a central lozenge are each divided by two substantially narrower double niches lacking interior designs, and the field terminates in a further narrow double niche at both ends. All the motifs are decorated with parmakli outlines and bear long hooks at their points. – Minor holes and damage to the sides, stains.

    Now world famous, this fragment of a saf kilim with a double niche design was first published by the Sailer Gallery in 1988. It is not only the spaciously conceived and delicately drawn design, but above all the intense and brilliant colours that make this kilim so special. – Major missing sections, mounted onto canvas.

    This section of a panel from a kilim originally woven in two parts displays a light red field and a wide orange-ground border, which has X-forms in different colour combinations aligned in a row. The field contains a design bar of small, open hexagons from which extend powerful, horizontal double hooks. The white surrounds of the hexagons merge with the equally white hooks, and both are drawn with striking striped outlines. A further kilim presenting this rare field design is in the McCoy Jones Collection. – Mounted onto canvas.

    This two-panel kilim displays horizontal stripes – alternately wider and narrower bands – in dark brown, salmon, white, red-brown and green, separated by border stripes. The simply conceived design consists of hexagons in varying colours, each enclosing a diamond decorated with triangles. A reciprocal crenellated band provides the side finish, and each end shows an elem of abstract leaves. – Restored sides, several major rewoven areas.

    Kilims displaying simple stripe design were woven for everyday use in many Anatolian regions. Judging by its palette, this example is probably from the Bergama region. The wider horizontal bands in red, white, green and blue are interspersed with colour blocks composed of narrow stripes. The design is enhanced by design bands brocaded in delicate undulating lines. – Slight signs of age and wear, good overall condition.

    Woven in a single piece in a composition of horizontal stripes, this kilim belongs to a homogeneous group of examples whose provenance is given as the villages surrounding Keles, a small town south of Bursa, by Balpinar in "100 Kilims". Large double niches, each enclosing a light red, serrated central design, have been placed on the white ground of the four wide bands. The arches are decorated with closely spaced parmakli designs which combine with the lateral sections to produce reciprocal interlocked effects. Wide horizontal bands composed of monochrome stripes have been inserted between them as dividing designs. Among the comparative pieces cited, the kilim in the McCoy Jones Collection shows the greatest similarities to the Poppmeier piece. – Incomplete sides, several minor holes, mounted onto canvas.

    In this long single-panel kilim, a light red central diamond with serrated outlines has been placed in an undecorated dark blue field like an island surrounded by water. It is the only published example of its kind, possibly a one-off. The ground of the field is slightly abrashed in subtle shades tending to green, thus it does not appear like a monochrome surface. The narrow, lateral serrated borders are a characteristic feature of Balikesir kilims. – Several holes, mounted onto canvas.

    This large two-panel kilim from the Fethiye region displays an empty red field, side finishes composed of light blue points and elems containing loosely aligned stepped polygons. The kilim was probably used as an eating cloth during celebrations. Due to the aging process of the colour, the red field does not appear like a uniform surface, subtly changing in hue. In addition, one of the panels is woven in a somewhat darker shade of red. – Incomplete sides and ends, several missing sections. Mounted onto canvas.

    This single-panel cover is brocaded in a design of red, blue and green diamonds arranged in colour diagonals on a plainwoven red foundation. The yellow outlines of the diamonds provide the ground colour of the field. The quality of the colours and the vibrant style of the composition, which uses motifs larger than those seen in later zilis, allow us to assign an early date. An almost identical example is in the Rabe Collection (RA 246). – Incomplete sides and end finishes, several missing sections, mounted onto canvas.
