Exceptional Tekke Main Carpet

Exceptional Tekke Main Carpet

This is a really wonderful Tekke Main carpet. It has fine silky wool and wonderful dyes. Note the mahogany field colour with a dark blue and a lovely blue-green. The main guls are rounded and well-spaced while the secondary guls are well drawn. Note the one row of gurbaghe guls. The borders are dominated by the classic octagonal motifs, but also have other interesting ornaments especially along the long borders. This tour de force is in almost perfect original condition with only a couple of very small old repairs. Highly recommended to both collectors and decorators.
