Extremely Rare Antique Chodor Turkoman Runner With

RARE ANTIQUE CHODOR TURKOMAN RUNNER, Central Asian tribal, Turkmenistan, late 19th century, and coming in excellent overall condition for the collector. The exact size is: 2'-6" x 11'-8" (77 x 356 m). In my 40 years experience in the antique Oriental rug trade, this is the very first Chodor Turkmen runner I have ever seen. The "ak-su"(white water) allover field design is a motif usually reserved for trappings and tent bags. The "Turkoman-line" border is a common element found in many different Turkmentribal rugs and carpets.The weaving has an asymmetrical knot structure open to the right on natural dark brown wool warps and wefts that are comprised of one shoot of cotton and one shoot of naturalmedium brown wool, both finely spun. All of the dyes are natural and derived from plant sources. The four cord side cord over-castings, wrapped in a "barber-pole" fashion with red and dark brown wool, are all original and complete. The top and bottom endings are both original and are now sewn secure to prevent any future loss of structure. With a high quality rug padding underneath, the textile is immediately serviceable as a decorative floor covering and it come in a usable"American hallway" size. This weaving is clean and collection ready.

ADDENDUM: Werner Loges has published a rare old Chodor Turkmen main tent carpet with an allover 'ak-su' field pattern and dated 2nd half of the 19th century. Refer to: Turkoman Tribal Rugs, 1980, plate 67, pages 112-113. Mr. loges states; "The 'ak-su' motif is one of the archetypal Turkoman ornaments used by many different groups. Not only does it establish the common origian of the tribes, but it indicates a relationship with the carpet-weavers of Asia Minor, exemplified by the so-called "Holbein" carpets, on which the 'ak-su' motif appears unchanged in the field. The historical events underlying the connection between Anatolia and Turkmen carpets date back to the 10th
