Grand scale pieces like this Antique Tekke Main Carpet was the most important and expensive weavings created by the Turkoman tribes. Highlighted by the repeated Gul design which was unique to each tribe, this rug is an exemplary example of the technical mastery of the Tekke tribes in creating visually stunning masterpieces.
This unique and beautiful Camel Hair Serapi comes to us from Northwest Persia and dates from the 19th century. The undyed camel hair is extremely desirable and increasingly rare. The grace and quiet sophistication of the colors, mixed with the serene geometric patterns, give this rug a luxurious quality hard to find. The undyed camel border creates a fantastic “rug within a rug” look.
