  • Kazak Long Rug

    • Lot6
    • OriginSouth West Caucasus
    • Dimensions304 x 100 cm
    • Agesecond half 19th century
    • Result EUR4,464

    This red-ground long rug features a repeat of five slender offset trees decorated with hooked diamonds and serrated palmettes. The white-ground border contains hexagons in varying colours aligned in a row. The published examples of this rare Kazak group are virtually indistinguishable and probably originate from the same location, although as yet this has not been identified. Features that differ from other Kazaks are the wealth of brilliant and diverse colours as well as the border ornamentation, which would be more typical of Saliani or Chajli rugs. They are assumed to be Armenian weavings. – Good condition, only minor repairs. The selvedges have been repaired on both sides.

    The field of this rare Kazak is divided into five rectangles separated by a continuous surrounding border. Alternately green and red, the rectangles contain a central hooked diamond enclosing a large cross, surrounded by decorative designs and four animals in the corners. The diamonds decorated with diagonal arms in the main border resemble crabs or spiders. – Original selvedges, repiled lower right corner and finish. Somewhat reduced upper finish, a number of repiled areas in the field.

  • Reyhanli Camel Cover

    Add to wishlist
    • Lot11
    • OriginSouth East Anatolia, Gaziantep
    • Dimensions458 x 161 cm
    • Agemid 19th century
    • Result EUR3,968

    The field and the two wide borders of this long and narrow kilim were woven separately and then joined. The rare design in the white field consists of undulating bands in diverse colours, arranged in a mirror-image composition around three hexagons placed at the centre of the field. This kilim was probably woven by a Reyhanli nomad tribal group in the Gaziantep region and served as a camel cover. Böhmer has published a similar example. – Very good condition.

  • Şarköy Kilim

    • Lot12
    • OriginSouth East Europe, Bulgaria
    • Dimensions265 x 200 cm
    • Agesecond half 19th century
    • Result EUR6,820

    This gorgeous Şarköy kilim was made in one of the villages in the western part of Bulgaria, close to the border of former Yugoslavia. This is why the old trade name for these pieces was "Pirot” kilim. Framed by three borders of geometric and floral motifs, the whole of the red field is filled by a dark blue tree of life drawn in mirror image, with sprawling branches that point upwards. – A number of minor holes, otherwise well preserved, original finishes all around.
