This Turkmen rug was handwoven in Northern Afghanistan during the third quarter of the 20th century.
The soft abrash of the red field really standouts against the limited color palette of the overall composition. The classic Turkmen shapes and symbols that make up the main design also shine in various tones of ivory and brown. The top and bottom are framed nicely by traditional skirt borders traditionally found in many Turkmen rugs.
In very good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Low pile, with a soft handle.
