Measurement: 51" x 77"

Material: Wool and silk

Condition: Fine

Additional Information: A closely related rug is depicted and discussed in Elena
Tsareva’ s book “Rugs and Carpets from Central Asia”. Page 60, Illustration 29. [Elena
actually examined this rug] (Penguin Book ISBN 014 00 6369 2 and, Allen Lane ISBN 0
7139 1504 8)
When Tekke people moved to Persia in the 1920s, they discovered new materials
and dyes, which were not available in Turkestan, and they successfully combined new
and better materials with the traditional design and skillful workmanship, resulting in
beautiful rugs with bight, eye popping colors, but still in the shades of red typical of
traditional Turkoman rugs and carpets.
Elena Tsareva noted the unusual foundation of this rug, which she thought might be raw
silk, and the bright “pigeon blood” color. She also commented on the exceptionally good
condition of this rug, and it’ s tight weave.
