|#6155||4.3x5.6||Tekke Ensi, hand knotted wool, Turkmenistan, 19thC, not as busy as some we see, at the base of the trees in the corner is what looks like an animal and tree design, with two bird figures flanking the base of the tree, this is probably just the top of two serrated leaves, however still an interesting design, the bottom third contains a magenta color, this is a fine multi ply wool thread that resembles the multi ply cherry red color we see in Salor pieces, this is also a color I see in early 19thC Kashmir shawls, the edge has been bulked up with three columns of symmetrical knots, some wear and restoration||POR|
