Important 1850-1875 Antique Timuri (baluch-in-name-only) Main Tent Carpet. Wow For Sale

Important 1850-1875 Antique Timuri (baluch-in-name-only) Main Tent Carpet. Wow

PUBLISHABLE ANTIQUE TIMURI (Baluch-in-name-only) MAIN TENT CARPET, probablya product ofthe Yaub Khani clan, West Afghanistan, Circa 1850-1875, and coming in very good original condition for the specilaist collector. The size is: 5'-0" x 7'-2" (152 x 218 cm). A very colorful and quite early example of a Timuri main tent carpet.The carpet is asymmetrically knotted, open to the left, on natural ivory wool warps and wefts comprised of natural brown and blackwool with 100% natural dyes includingan insect-derived cochineal red.The brown and black dye lots used in field and border design elements shows oxidation. This lovely antique textile relicshows very good pile condition for its age (see photo 10) with the original goat hair side cord over-castings and the original multi-striped kilim end finishes. Note the sleeve tube sewnalong the entire top of the carpet by the previous owner to facilitatedisplay as a wall hanging (see photo 11). There are minor areas of professional re-piling to some worn spots accomplished some time in the past that do not detract from the eye and actually makes the carpet more aesthetically appealing (see photo 9). This weaving has lustrous, silky-soft, fine wool quality giving it a very supple, blanket-like,handle to it in the hand. Coupled with the rich natural dyes, the carpetexudes aluminous glow. This textile artifacthas beenprofessionally cleaned making it collection ready or immediately usable as a tribal textile art wall hanging display. Three similar specimens of this type are published in the rug book literature. Refer to: (1) Jeff W. Boucher, "Baluchi Woven treasures", 1989, plate 54, pages 128-129, dated mid-19th century,(2) James Opie, "Tribal Rugs", 1992, plate 13.24, page 243, dated 2nd half 19th century, and (3) Gary Wisdom, "Baluch Tribal Weavings", 2008, plate 17, pages 49-49,and dated 19th century.Like my offering, thesethree splendid Timuri tribal antique collectorexamples show a wide range of beautifulcolors that seem to disappear from these Timuri weavings after theend of the 3rd quarter of the 19th century. A rare and quite beautiful antique oriental collector carpet.Ifyou have any questions concerning this early Timuri main tent carpet, feel free to callMichael Phillips at(303) 885-7599 or email me (READ: phillipsrugs at comcast dot net).Please takea littleextra time to review all ofthe other fine antique rugsand weavings of merit I have posted exclusively with sale this week and do remember to bookmark my seller ID: imokub2 (I am okay, you be too) to your "favorite sellers list" to seemy weekly future offerings of antique oriental rugs, carpets, tribal bags, kilim weavings,and other oriental textiles of merit. NOTICE: All of my offerings come with an unconditional 100% money back refund guarantee (includingall initial s/h/ins. fees) if for ANY reason the winning buyer isnot happy with their antique oriental rug or textile art purchase from me.GOOD LUCK offerDING. Just a splendid, top shelf quality, weaving for the collector looking for rare and esoteric investment quality antique tribal and nomadic weavings.

ADDENDUM: The Timuri tribes of West Afghanistan possess ethnological roots that are something of a mystery to antique rug historians. They are NOT "Baluch" per se, but they lived and dwelt among the Baluch and borrowed structural weave techniques and design motifs from the Baluch adding to the confusion of attribution. Noteinthe photos of thecarpet I am presently offering that it also has also shows"borrowed" Turkmen design componets (the Yomud "tree" or "gapyrga" motif)from their more northern
