    A fragment of a two-panel kilim from the surroundings of Sivas, originally some five metres in length. The white field contains red, blue and light green lozenges with parmakli outlines, larger-scale, lateral brown diamonds with stepped outlines and small funnel shapes in red, apricot and green. All the motifs are spaced at an airy distance from one another, leaving large parts of the ground undecorated. The composition appears vigorous and confident, which is regarded a certain indication of an early date. In later examples of the group (see Petsopoulos), the field is covered in a wealth of considerably smaller designs; these compositions appear more rigid and far more perfunctory. The elem preserved at the bottom is very wide, and its horizontal stripes are filled with parmakli lozenges and interlocked chevrons. – In the current reconstruction the two panels are reversed left to right. Presented in this way, the field design makes no sense. A kilim from the Megalli Collection similar in field layout throws light on the design context of this kilim: the large brown devices were precisely aligned on the central axis, and the polychrome parmakli lozenges were offset against them in horizontal rows created by colour change. – Various missing sections. Mounted onto canvas.

    Narrow and very finely woven, this panel once belonged to a kilim originally in four panels. In addition to the second half of the field analogous in design, there would have been two borders which were produced separately. It is likely that only a narrow loom was available to the weaver. Ten rows of three hexagons, each enclosing a diamond with serrated outlines, are spaced at wide intervals on the red abrashed ground. Woven in subtle shades, the motifs appear to float on the red surface. Two serrated diamonds in brilliant white cotton stand out in the sixth row. If their purpose was to accentuate the centre of the field, the design of the kilim, which is reduced at the top, would have consisted of eleven rows. Remains of a border survive at the lower end. – Several minor holes, incomplete upper finish. Mounted onto canvas.

    Woven in a light and richly differentiated palette, this white-ground kilim was made by an Aydinli tribal group in the Konya region. The rare field design consists of twenty hexagons with serrated tri-coloured outlines, each enclosing a hooked diamond. In sets of two, hexagons identical in colour scheme and ornamentation are joined into horizontal units by a blue surround. The reciprocal effect of their inner outlines against the ground produces white diamonds along the central axis between the hexagons. The field design is flanked on both sides by powerful, indigo double hooks. It is now impossible to establish whether the kilim originally included two vertical borders woven separately. – Various missing areas, both ends incomplete. Corroded brown. Mounted onto canvas.

    This red-ground Yüncü kilim featuring a deep blue field design of three geometric, stylised trees and a narrow border echoing the shapes of the trees is a visual masterpiece. The reduction to two primary colours, red and blue, results in a strong focus on the bold design, which is enlivened by embroidered white outlines and several white design details. The horizontal branches ending in double hooks combine with the ground to form a second reciprocal design layer of wide undulating bands with serrated outlines. An almost identical kilim has been published by Eskenazi. – Good condition.

    Kilims featuring horizontal stripes have been woven in every Turkish region, probably for many centuries. The range of variations seen in their diverse compositions, designs, colours and the quality of their materials is huge. In this striped kilim used on a daily basis as a blanket or floor covering, wide undecorated stripes in light and translucent colours (including heavily abrashed sections woven in light brown camel wool) alternate with five narrower design bands which contain reciprocal double hooks in different colour combinations and are framed by red-and-white undulating bands. – Several larger missing sections, one darned area, partially incomplete ends and corners. Mounted onto canvas.

    This traditional design type of huge nested "baklava" star devices, expanding with explosive power and used as the central motifs in horizontal panels of varying ground colours, was wide-spread in both West and Central Anatolia. The Poppmeier kilim displays five panels separated by narrow polychrome stripes and white elems each decorated with five large double hooks; it was probably woven in the Afyon area. The mellow palette and soft structure support this attribution. – Slight signs of age and wear, minor rewoven sections, good overall condition.

    This long, two-panel kilim was woven by a tribal group of the Reyhanli Confederation in the Gaziantep region. The white ground of the field is covered by a dense repeat: three rows of large stepped diamonds, each crowned with a stepped polygon at the top and bottom, are interspersed with smaller diamonds enclosing hooked diamonds. Small stars – a design frequently encountered in Gaziantep kilims – fill the spaces between the primary motifs as well as their interiors. The elongated wavy vine decorated with carnations in the dark brown border is a typical feature of such weavings from this border region close to Syria. – Fragmented condition, only half of one panel has survived, major missing sections along the sides, mounted onto canvas.

    Originally in two panels of which one has survived, this kilim was probably woven in a village in the surroundings of Karapinar, i.e. the eastern part of the Konya region. Its design consists of wide horizontal stripes containing large reciprocal elibelinde motifs, each flanked by two white-ground floral vine borders which alternate with plain, light brown horizontal bands of undyed camel wool. The sharply serrated outlines of the elibelinde designs are an interesting stylistic feature. The high quality of the colours, including different shades of green, can be regarded as an indication of age. – Several missing sections, signs of age and wear. Mounted onto canvas and attached to a wooden frame.

    This very rare, two-panel striped kilim was woven without lateral borders and elem finishes. Like a comparable example in the Istanbul Vakiflar Museum showing similar colours and the same design layout, it was probably made in the surroundings of Sivrihisar. The seven wide horizontal bands display huge double hooks, while the white-ground dividing stripes contain abstract bird motifs joined into band-like designs. The subtle and heavily patinated colours indicate an early date. – Several missing sections, mounted onto canvas.

    In this Yüncü kilim from the surroundings of Balikesir, the rare design of horizontal stripes is a striking feature. Only a very few comparative examples of this type have been published. As in all Yüncü kilims, the palette is limited to shades of red and blue. The motifs seen in the wide and narrower, regularly alternating design bands – large hexagons and funnel shapes as well as smaller double hooks and hooked diamonds – all stand alone on the red ground, detached from one another. As a result, they look as if they were simply laid on top of the surface. To break the monotony of the static design, the weaver has surrounded the ten large hexagons with brilliant white cotton outlines. Narrow decorative stripes and small ornamental motifs are embroidered in the brocading technique. – Slightly damaged sides, good overall condition.
