Early Beshir long rug

  • Origin: Central Asia
  • Circa: 1850
  • Size: 5.31 x 2.40 metres / 17'5 x 7'9 feet
  • Ref: A26047

Beshir rugs are woven by the Beshir tribe of Turkmenistan in Central Asia. They have a distinctive weaving style in a region where most rugs by neighbouring tribes can be recognised by their so called elephant foot pattern and their deep blues and reds. This mid-19th century rug has a remarkable crisp drawing and harmonious vegetable-dyed colours of terractota, light blue, yellow and ivory. The creative drawing is framed by multiple borders an all four sides, all intact, which is remarkable for a rug of this age. A handsome example, rare in this large format and would complement a classic or contemporary setting. In very good practical condition.
