Rare 19th C. Turkoman, Central Asian, Nomadic Yomud Tribal Bag Face Rug Trapping:
A rare 19th c. Central Asian Yomud 16-gul Chuval which is the native word for household bag used to store personal possessions. Different sizes of these bags (which originally had a flatweave back) were strapped into the wooden skeletal structure of the Yurt. The dean of Turkoman studies, Werner Loges, says on P.102 (Plate # 60) of "Turkoman Tribal Rugs" - Yomud "Chuvals with sixteen guls are rare". The "Running Dog" border is typical of Yomud carpets & Rugs. Size: 2' 3" x 4'. This rug is out of our collection and is earlier and finer in weave than most surviving Yomud Trappings. The condition on this piece is good to very good.
