About this item

Pile & Condition: For the age of this kilim rug very good condition one corner a little restoration and very small restorations in the field.

Size: 246 cm x 177 cm | 8,1x 5,8 feet

Seller Opinion: Here we have a supremely rare cochineal dyed kilim rug woven with gold-thread cotton. The red in the field and the border is dyed with an insect called Cochineal, Cochineal was a very expensive dye, but because of its strength and true colors, it became one of the major red dyes of commerce in those times. The design of the rug is also very outstanding in the field we have three chests filled full with triangle-shaped Venus-amulets with talismanic abilities and all-seeing eye amulets against evil eyes and entities. The gold thread is hand-spun on the cotton yarn you can see on the HD function when you stay with the mouse on the pictures mostly in the field in the small golden yellow motifs and also in the border. In the major border, we have stylized double-headed serpents in a hexagonal cartouche these are also amulets in my opinion influenced by the "The Gate of The Serpents" in Aleppo.
