Description
Carpet - 146 cm - 84 cm
Wool on wool - Turkmenistan - Early 20th century

Tchuval-Tekke carpet late 19th century
146 x 84 cm

The chuval was originally a transport bag, with one side knotted and the other in simple plain red weaving. Most are items for everyday use while certain known as marriage pieces belong to the bride's dowry.
They are knotted with the greatest care and this is the case in this piece of which the second side has been removed after its original purpose for convenience when used on the ground.

Very good overall condition, minor wear consistent to its age and use.
