Tibetan khaden, early 1900's, with lustrous thick piled natural dyed wool sporting a central mandala-like motif with what appear to be 'leaves' spread sparingly about in a rare multi-hued green center field, which has wonderful abrash. Altogether there are ten borders, the so-called 'Greek t' main border has flowers at the cardinal points while one of the inner borders sports pearls, and the four corners of the main field are anchored with a somewhat unusual design. [An almost identical but apparently earlier piece can be found published on page 93 in the book Secrets of Tibetan Weaving by Karma Trinley Darchen.] This carpet was once 'surrounded' by a felt red cloth covered border - as is common with many older Tibetan carpets - whose red dye has migrated somewhat into the exposed ends of the warp threads at either end of the carpet; although this in no way distracts from the carpets appeal. Both warp and weft are wool, size 1.46m x 0.98m (64.5" x 3i.5") and the carpet is in excellent condition.
