Antique 19th-century Tekke Turkoman rug

Antique 19th-century Tekke Turkoman rug

reference:  6365

This Tekke rug was made in Turkmenistan in around the 3rd quarter of the 19th century. It is  an early example of a “commercial” Tekke rug, made to be sold or bartered, but still with the attributes of a truly tribal rug woven to stay within the family of the weaver. It has lovely shades of blue, among them a very electric light blue, and the spacing of the guls is generous and would not be amiss in a main carpet.
