4'6" x 6'4" Antique 19th Century Small Ersari Carpet [SH-091-B]

An antique early 19th century small Ersari carpet. The design in this rug shows us a 3 x 9 gol pattern with tauk-noska animals looking in opposing directions. The secondary gol shows a star tree, and also visible is an emerging chem-che gol. With eight colors (including a strong green and indigo) and a 3 cord selvedge, this piece was given a museum quality hand wash before being preserved from light and wear in our gallery’s Turkoman room.
