    In this very old, white-ground Moghan rug, two rows of six Memling güls are divided along the central axis by a pole of slanting stripes which is decorated with several nested diamonds in diverse colours. Hooked diamonds are aligned in a row in the golden yellow border. – Obvious signs of age and wear, low pile, the foundation is visible in a number of places; one long, stitched horizontal tear at the centre of the field.

    The midnight blue field contains a repeat of elongated shield forms, each enclosing a palmette, and slender trees placed between them. The motifs of the four horizontal rows are interconnected by angular red stems. The bottom of a fifth row is just visible at the upper end of the field. Three blue-ground examples of this specific design type have been published by Reinisch, and one of the still rarer red-ground pieces is illustrated in Herrmann. The border of slanting stripes in red and white is a unique characteristic of our Afshar, and its elaborate flatwoven finishes are a further striking feature. – Slight signs of age and wear, very good overall condition, original finishes all around.

    A large, dark blue central medallion lies in the light red field; the spandrels are white, and the red border shows large blossoms. Woven in the village of Bilverdi, the rug stands out on account of its rare format. – Very good condition, the original finishes survive all around.

    Strongly abrashed in several tones, the camel field is undecorated except for tiny brocaded motifs that seem to be scattered at random. Halved hooked diamonds protrude into it from the sides, creating a serrated outline around the free space. The border design of reciprocal trefoils is typical of the Qashqa’i. The brilliant white sections are woven in cotton yarn. Purchased by the consignor at Galerie Neiriz, Berlin. – Very well preserved except for small repaired areas, original finishes all around.

    Like a desert island, a red spider gül lies at the centre of an empty white field decorated along the inner sides with small halved diamonds in different variations of colour. Very finely woven in colours of supreme quality, the kilim is a product of the Kashkuli tribe. It shows barely any signs of wear and was probably always treasured by the nomads. – Very good condition except for one small hole.

    The great age of this silk Heriz, owned by a German family for several generations, can be deduced from the degree of patination and the style of the design. All the devices are spaciously proportioned and powerful in expression. Two blue columns with massive bases, each crowned with an upside-down palmette rather than a capital, support the flat three-lobed arch at the upper end of the field. Two further columns are cut by the border. A flowering tree growing from a large bellied vase with handles at the lower end of the field ascends to the apex of the arch. – One small torn area in the upper right corner, otherwise in good condition, with the original finishes all around.
