    Weavers in Anatolia have created carpets in this two-medallion style since the 15th century, and the early variants of these designs can be seen in the paintings of the 15th and 16th century, in paticular those by German artist Hans Holbein the younger.
    The relationship to large-pattern Holbein carpets is clear and particularly obvious in the complex star interlace seen in the centre of the medallion. In some of the 16th-century carpets now in Turkish museums, the eight spokes are filled with forms that resemble birds, but by the 18th and 19th century these are more abstract and appear as hooked forms.
    The renowned collector Joseph McMullan loved this type of carpet and gave one to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the other to the Brooklyn Museum of Art; both are very similar to this example, which has a wider range of colours and small filler motifs.

    Konya prayer rugs come in many forms and indeed this may well reflect the religious importance of the city within Anatolia. The steeply stepped mirror protrudes into a brushed-green ground in which two samovars point towards the apex of the niche. The red field is filled with stars and tribal devices as well as the green hanging lamp above which there are implied rays of light. This freedom of form in the field is reflected in the border, which has a loose interpretation of a budding flower form on an orange ground that is always associated with the greater Konya region.
    The best Konya prayer rugs are highly sought after by collectors as they express the exuberant use of colour and individuality of composition that characterises Anatolian weaving at its best.

    Very early Tekke Torba with an almost clothlike delicate texture. The much too pale color photo in Rageth No.55 does not do justice to the unquestionable quality of this weaving chosen by Rageth as high-class representative among the countless existing Tekke Torba. Slightly better color photo in Hodenhagen catalog, November 1997, no.93. Remarkably saturated deep cherry red ground color.
    Clearly drawn details of main and secondary ornaments point to an early age, as suggested by Rageth before 1800.
    A further indication for high age is the flower-box border, while later Tekke Torba show various types of the much more common Kotchanak border. Interesting detail is the occasional but obviously deliberate use of some rows of white cotton in contrast with neighboring dark blue. The high quality of this textile is only revealed by seeing and touching it in the flesh.

    Very early and exceptionally large Ersari trapping used for not specifically known decoration in connection with the marriage ceremonies, probably within the yurt and not for the bridal procession. Weavings showing a central medallion were produced by Ersari tribal groups in great numbers and varying sizes over a long period of at least 3 centuries, later also as storage bags known as torba. First published with a color photo in Jean Lefevre, London, auction catalogue 14.03.1978, lot 3.
    Later on, also in Hodenhagen catalog November 1997 no. 38. Apart from the size indication for early origin of this trapping can be derived from the intense and very special colors.
    The light brick brown ground color combined with lively complimentary hues are typical for the early Ersari production in the western area of Mangishlak peninsular before the several migrations of this tribe into new quarters along the Amu Darya valley. The early production in the 18th century and earlier is evidenced by main carpets like for example Mackie/Thompson, Turkmen No.85 and others in various exhibition catalogues of Eberhart Herrmann, Munich Volume I to X.
    In the later Amu Darya production strong red coloration became dominant. For this development reference is made to the still quite early Ersari trapping in Herrmann, Volume V, no. 84 b, clearly already belonging to Amu Darya production.

    Saryk main carpet with Temirdshin guls originally from the UK trade. Rageth No. 47 with all details for structure C-14 dating, colours and comparable examples.
    Indication for early production: aubergine ground color, contrasting with light orange and white wool (only a few knots in cotton), square form of main guls with highly precise design of clover leaf centers and similarly precise design of star centers in the secondary motifs.
    Perfect spacing and interaction between the 2 types of the field ornamentation. The dimensions are comparable to early Salor carpets, both only to be produced in this precision by supervised workshop production during the early Merv period. In relevant literature this is the only example with a truly majestic appearance. All other Temirdshin gul carpets belong to nomadic production regardless of their early or later age.

    318 x 268 cm (10' 5" x 8' 10")
    Turkmenistan, ca. 1800
    Condition: very good according to age, mostly good pile, both ends partially minor incomplete, scattered small repairs, selvages rebound
    Warp: wool, weft: wool, pile: wool with silk highlights

    There are approximately just over forty complete Salor main carpets known, across which the consistency of design features is quite remarkable. There is very little difference in the drawing of the main gülli göl or the secondary mini-chuval gül, or indeed the main or minor borders.
    The strength of the design tradition has led a number of authors to consider Salor main carpets to be the classical carpets of Central Asia, probably made in a workshop rather than within a tribal enclave. There can be slight differences in the amount of cochineal-dyed silk, the number of columns and rows of güls, and the ground colour.
    This example has only a little bit of silk at the very centre of the gülli göls. The bright-red ground is of exceptional clarity and typifies the Salors' mastery of dyeing with madder in what must have been multiple dye baths. The use of six columns of twelve güls results in nice tall and rounded gülli göls and almost ideal proportions to the placement of motifs throughout the field. The almost perfect state of preservation is remarkable for this age.
