534. a resplendent antique Tekke Turkoman carpet

Antique Turkoman Tekke Turkmenistan

534. Provenance: Tekke tribe, Turkoman weaving group, Central Asia

Size: 300 x 220 cm

Age: Circa 1890

Condition: Good for age, with just very minor areas of slight wear.

Notes: Restrained and full of dignity, this antique tribal Tekke is superb. Very finely woven, with a flexible, soft handle, it demands respect. The classic, joined Tekke guls are of a good size and spacing and the dyes are natural. A must-have for Turkoman tribal collectors. These are harder and harder to find, and this is very well-priced for what it is.
