Middle of the 19th Century An Unusual Turkmen Tekke Main Rug.Original Size 205 x 310 cm.It Has Good Pile On It.
Large rectangular carpets such as this one, the most important and expensive weavings created by every Turkmen tribe, are referred to as ‘main carpets.’ They were the primary floor covering used in Turkmen tents, and were decorated with the main gul, the most important symbol used for each tribe. The nomadic Turkmen of Central Asia are renowned for their technically skilled and visually dramatic weaving. This carpet can be attributed to the Tekke subgroup of the Turkmen nomads based on the specific form of the gul motifs, which are unique to each tribal unit. The skill of the Turkmen weavers can be seen in the expertly conceived and meticulously executed design of this carpet.

  • Stay away from this seller. He attempted to sell us a fake rug which was tested by experts who confirmed the carpet was a fake. Luckily Catawiki reimbursed us. We will certainly report this case.

    Tutto è andato bene,salvo il fatto che il venditore non ha unito un certificato di autenticità,che mi sarei aspettata di trovare.
    Inoltre il tappeto era pieno di terra,arà nacessario un lavaggio.

  • Unfortunately, the item was not delivered, no notification was sent where it was stored and I received no notification by sms or email. A shame as it looked a nice rug. No blame to the sender.
