Bashir Fragment

Mid 19th C.
Turkmen
DESCRIPTION:

Unfortunately, it is very rare for some of the earliest examples of weaving genres to survive intact into the present. Fragments provide the connoisseur with windows onto the past that, with a little imagination, can be quite informative. Great fragments, however, are more than mere specimens. Though obviously abbreviated, this fragment of a Bashir carpet from Central Asia is in itself an excellent example of weaving and is readily displayable. In keeping with the formative period of this genre, the weave is delicate, the handle fine, and colors exceptional. The ground color alternates from indigo to aqua blue, as ikat-derived elements float throughout. On the right-hand side, the unusual full geometric border system is preserved and is complete with selvedge. Collection of Val Arbab
