119-005 Antique Turkoman 19th Century Prayer Rug
Offered is a genuine and quite rare Turkoman antique prayer rug. This rug was, in my opinion, produced in the mid nineteenth century (1840-1860). For its age the rug is in pretty good condition considering its obvious use. There is one noticeable imperfection; i.e., a two inches hole in the lower third quadrant. My price reflects this imperfection. If it were not part of the rug, my price would be considerably higher.
The rug is 100% wool. Both the foundation and the pile are wool. Please look at my photos carefully and you'll come to appreciate the workmanship and design that went into creating this work of art. The rug measures 55.25 inches in length and has a width of 36 inches.
