Object Description

A charming Ersari carpet with lustrous wool and fine weaving giving rise to the clarity of its drawing. Aa an early example, it not only has better quality wool but its pattern is simpler and more naive in comparison to the later examples. The muted red terracotta field is attractive with a natural colour variation (abrash) giving depth and great richness to the simple drawing. There is a touch of green which is uncommon for this type of weaving. A classic example with tribal charm to blend in a wide variety of settings.

Object History

Ersari carpets of Central Asia have a long and rich history in the world of antique rugs. They are widely appreciated for their quality, use of rich colours and their distinctive ‘elephant foot’ patterns. They are durable, charming pieces.

Object Condition

It is in excellent condition, still retaining all its four borders and its original kilim fringes are intact at both ends, rare features for a rug dating c.1900.
