Rare antique 19th century Ersari Beshir small rug with stacked guls on a polka-dotted varied blue field, age-appropriate wear and a lively green. 102 x 183 cm. Condition: Overall wear; pile is near full in borders. White cotton yarn marks areas of lowest pile and 3 small holes. There are two small crude old repairs. The sides are partly original and mostly re-wrapped in red wool. NOTE:The details show truer color than the overall image. There is considerable abrash throughout and the reds shift almost row to row, from a light terracotta through cherry wood shades all the way to passages of crimson. In 40 years' collecting and in the literature i have seen only a few Beshirs with this field design, mostly larger carpets, none in this size format. This piece has been in our collection since the early 1980's. -- The eccentric color scheme of the ground color of the field: dark indigo alternating with deep sea blue-green, with unpredictable intervals of natural browns; the profuse scattering of red "polka dots" in field, with additional small motifs interspersed; and the uncomplicated border system of a broad, uncrowded main border carrying "bowties" and "crossed dna bands", plus one minor border and 2 guard stripes are all features that indicate an early date and nomadic work.
