Description
Kothan Samarcanda - Carpet - 202 cm - 101 cm
Wool on wool - Turkmenistan - First half 20th century

Beautiful Kothan/Samarkand carpet, knotted in the first half of the 20th century, in excellent condition, in full fleece, with the original Kilim totoi still present on the headers, where the "need" of a small restoration appears to stop the header itself. Beautiful and elegant iconography reminiscent of certain Chinese carpets, being indeed knotted in eastern Turkmenistan, today Chinese territory, although iconographically fuller in the structure. Wool on wool, measurements 202 x 101 cm, rare for the Kilim on the headers and for the size.
