This enchanting Bokhara carpet is a so-called Tekke variety, hand woven by the Afghan Tekke tribes along the Russian border early in the 20th century. Note their distinguishing characteristic guls, an octagonal motif divided symmetrically into quadrants. All is laid against a brick red ground. These Afghan examples have wool warp and weft threads. I’m always charmed by the many details in the borders of these.
With strong low pile and sound condition. A small room size of 10′ 9″ x 7′ 5″. A unique piece, $1200.
