    This pastoral rug is coarsely woven in a chequerboard design of brilliant and diverse, almost jazzy colours arranged in combinations that produce wide horizontal bands. The foundation is white cotton. The abstract geometric design appears decidedly modern to western viewers. Naturally, this effect was not intended by the nomads who made this sleeping rug (yatak) for their own use. – Good condition.

    This square sitting rug shows an oversized octagonal gülli gül with "clover leaf" designs at the centre of the burgundy field and four hooked vines in the corners. It was woven by one of the Ersari tribal groups who, under pressure from the Russian invasion of Central Asia, migrated to northern Afghanistan and established themselves there in fixed settlements. It is remarkably fine in weave, and the outstanding quality of its wool is impressive. The flatwoven finishes brocaded in a diamond design are preserved at both ends. – Perfect condition.

    A Central Anatolian prayer kilim whose narrow field contains a red mihrab with a white undulating outline. The pointed arch is decorated with hooks and crowned with a large double hook that protrudes far into the olive-green field above it. The "zip fastener" outlines of the borders are a typical feature of Obruk kilims. The double arrow designs of the white inner border are also found in a kilim from the Poppmeier Collection and in another kilim from the Vok Collection woven in the Karaman region further to the south. – Very good condition.

    The prayer rugs of Innice are a comparatively rare and highly homogenous group. Their wide red mihrab field is always undecorated except for double hooks projecting inwards from the border. Two flowering tulip trees stand in the green area above the stepped arch, and the horizontal panel above it is embellished with long-stemmed tulips, similar to Ladik prayer rugs. The border design of squares decorated with arrows as well as hook devices on a maize-coloured ground is identical in all examples. – Repiled lower right corner, a number of repaired areas, original selvedges, remnants of the kilim finishes survive at both ends.
