EARLY ANTIQUETEKKETURKOMAN AK-CHUVAL DOWRY WEAVING, Central Asian Tribal, Turkmenistan,3rd quarter of the19th century (perhaps earlier?), andcoming in very good overall condition for the collector. The approximate size is:2'-6" x 3'-6" (76 x 107cm).Typical for antique Tekke Turkmen weavings, this early antique specimen of an knotted open to the right on naturalivory wool warpswith natural lightbrown woolwefts. The pile-woven panels are rather finely knotted with over 300 knots per square inch.All the dyes are 100% natural and derived from plant sources. All of the ivory areas are natural cotton. Magenta silk highlights and inlayare found in the elem panel "tree-of-life" motifs and in the very centers of the ivory, diamond-shaped, rosettes in the narrow, smaller pilepanels across the field.These ak-chuvals ("ak" means "white", symbol for purity) are made in pairs for the wedding asbridal dowrygifts. Originally this early examplehada back to itand was used inside the yurt forthe storage ofpersonalitems. Theelem panel skirt on this early antique specimen displays a spaciousness that is rarely encountered. The motifs have a dancing effect to the eye.The weaving comes in very good condition for its age with the original top and bottom end finishes and the original side cord over-castings. There are a few small holes, abasions,and "nicks" from past ethnographic tribal usageon the arid and windy steppes ofWest Turkestan. This ratherrare, beautiful,and very special"ak-chuval" is clean and collection ready.The weaving is quite lovely to hold and behold in the hand with a thin, crisp handle to it. Itmakesa very nice display as a wall hanging.
