Erzerum Namazlik Kilim
17th or 18th century
Wool. 48"x 63." Slit tapestry.
This rare and very early killim from my personal collection needs to be mounted on a muslin panel. I did a little restoration work on the piece to replace bad repairs. For example, where brown wefts had been replaced with a mustard yellow yarn, in the borders, I redid those areas. There is also a badly matched red patch in the upper part of the mihrab which I have intended to replace. Holes and areas which just have missing wefts can perhaps be left alone.
If you are interested in this early piece, please contact me to discuss it. SALE: $6500
