    Three large white-ground diamonds with reciprocal hooked outlines and an interior design of hooked diamonds are aligned on the central axis of the midnight blue field. The surrounding spaces are hermetically covered in flowering shrubs growing from vases, small blossoms, botehs, birds and four-legged animals. Judging by its structure and palette, the rug was woven by the Khamseh, probably one of the Arabi tribal groups. A Rahimlu Qashqa’i from the Kossow Collection is closely related in design. – Slight signs of age and wear, good overall condition, original finishes all around.

    This face of a Khamseh Shahsavan bag originally belonged to a khorjin. Very finely woven in the sumakh technique and with heavily patinated colours, it probably dates as early as the first half of the 19th century. An unusually wide border section surrounds a small central field in which octagons combine into a dense lattice design, with dice placed at the points of intersection. Purchased by the collector at Galerie Ostler, Munich. – Signs of age and wear, both ends minimally reduced.

    • OriginEast Anatolia

    • AgeMid 19th century
    • Result EUR6,200
    This Kurdish rug from East Anatolia features a field design of large, alternately red- and blue-ground box shapes which each contain a powerful cruciform decorated with four hooks. This distinctive motif is probably a tribal gül. It is found in a similar form in Shahsavan bag faces from Azerbaijan. One unmistakable feature of this rug group is the stepped polygons decorated with four hooks in the golden yellow border. A high pile, brilliant colours. – Repiled lower finish and upper right corner, otherwise in good condition, with the original selvedges.

    The extraordinary length of this prayer design Beshir raises the question of its purpose. It may have been used as a floor rug in a mosque, or it may have served as a decorative wall hanging in one of the palatial merchant houses of Bokhara. – Various repiled sections, especially along the sides and in the corner areas, slight signs of wear, otherwise in good condition.

    This rare Yomut torba presents nine chuval güls and chemche secondary güls in a brown-red field. The wide white border displays a striking design of merging crosses that catches the eye. It appears to be the identifying feature of a Yomut sub-group. A mafrash and a three-armed khalyk from the Pinner Collection belong to the same group. – Somewhat reduced at the bottom, no back, good overall condition.

    Two sections of a tent band originally very much longer (ca. twelve metres) that have been joined at the centre, with piled kibitka designs on a white wool warp-faced plainweave ground. Very finely woven and drawn with great care. Precise attribution to a particular tribe is currently not possible.
