ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1074758: Antique Ersari Turkmen Rug Of Rare Form, Great Study Item, Circa 1850 Or Earlier.

Antique Ersari Turkmen Rug Of Rare Form, Great Study Item, Circa 1850 Or Earlier.

£1,500    $1,955    €1,785
Size: 5ft 0in x 2ft 6in (153 x 77cm).
 
Antique Ersari Turkmen rug of scarce design.
 
Circa 1850 or earlier.
 
The rug is very similar to one published by George O'Bannon, in 'Turkoman rugs' page 21, the rug is described as being 'a fine example of Ersari Weaving', 'the guls in the field are derived from a Yomut pattern', and O'Bannon goes on to say that 'this is probably a unique piece'.
 
A very interesting rug from the region of northern Afghanistan and the borders of Turkmenistan; the rug has an unusual repeat small medallion design of extended diamond shaped guls, on a orange / red madder ground; the border designs are associated with both Baluch and Ersari Turkmen tribal weavers. The old collectors label attached to the rug attributes it to the 'Taimani Baluch'; although it is probable that the rug is by a Turkmen group related to the Ersari. The rug is without any doubt of some age and a rare design, further study would shed some more light on this rare and small group of Ersari rugs.
 
The rug is in fair condition, with even wear and medium / low pile, historic repairs and patches in places.
 
The rug would make an good display as a wall hanging.
