Beshir Turkmen dowry rug, 2nd half 19th century. www.knightsantiques.co.uk Size: 3ft 9in x 3ft 7in (114 x 110cm). Antique Beshir Turkmen rug of small square size, these rugs are generally considered to be ‘dowry’ weavings. 2nd half 19th century. This is an excellent example with a very unusual ikat design, this design is found only on a small group of rugs and bags. Dowry weavings of this type are very scarce and collectable. Note the elem panels at both ends containing a row of flowering shrubs. The rug is very fine and has a soft floppy handle. The rug is in excellent condition with slight even wear and good pile. The rug is suitable for display and would make a superb wall hanging. The rug has been hand washed and is ready for display. Stock Number: d-0561.
