  • Karabagh Kilim

    Add to wishlist
    • Lot203
    • OriginSouth Caucasus, Azerbaijan
    • Dimensions282 x 226 cm
    • AgeDated 1887
    • Result EUR6,875
    This large, single-panel kilim was probably woven in an Armenian village in the mountains of the Karabagh region. The brown field is almost completely covered by huge hexagons placed in offset rows and filled with nested hooked diamonds or serrated diamonds. The four white-ground hexagons which provide a certain structure in the composition diverge in ornamentation. They each contain a hooked diamond surrounded by ten small hexagons with a central star. The same small hexagons make up the design of the narrow border. At the top right, an empty space was left in the border scheme in order to add a date. The numbers 1887 are embroidered in the brocading technique. The fact that the date is not written in Islamic figures indicates that this brightly coloured kilim is an Armenian weaving. Wertime & Wright have published an almost identical piece. – Very good condition.

    • Lot209
    • OriginNorth Persia, Tehran region
    • Dimensions332 x 145 cm
    • AgeCa. 1900
    • Result EUR2,000
    This red-ground kilim presents a repeat of concentric stepped diamonds arranged into flat diagonal rows by colour change. In the Varamin area, different ethnic groups coexisted peacefully, influencing one another in terms of their rug and flatweave designs. The border ornamentation suggests that this example in the slit tapestry technique may be a Luri weaving. – Very good condition, original finishes all around.

  • Qashqa’i Kilim

    Add to wishlist
    • Lot214
    • OriginSouth West Persia, Fars
    • Dimensions249 x 156 cm
    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Result EUR4,500
    The effect of this Qashqa’i kilim, a weaving of the Darreh Shuri tribe, is achieved by the strong colour contrast between the undecorated blood-red central field and the equally empty, pistachio triangles positioned along the inner sides of the field. The protruding triangles create the multiple indentations in the shape of the field. The red and green spaces are set off by bold, white stepped outlines. A surrounding band of halved stepped diamonds has been inserted between the field and the border section of reciprocal trefoils and serrated bands. – Several rewoven areas, good overall condition.
