Vintage Turkman Yamut Rug
Symbolic figures and graphic geometric repeating patterns decorate this superb antique Yomud carpet, which displays a beautiful array of tribal symbols associated with Turkmen weavers and the large and talented Yomud group. The grand ensi-style composition divides this regal carpet into a series of lavish compartments with coffered strapwork walls that display original symbols and a beautiful array of maroons and carmine reds. Angular hands-on-hips motifs decorate the coffered compartments with an exquisite, beautifully restrained repeating pattern.
These decorative boxes are enclosed by angular guardbands filled with arthropodan starbursts, serrated cocoons, and geometric tiles. These richly decorative bands are offset by a composite end piece that displays towering ram’s horn poles and tree motifs with deeply serrated branches. Clear whites, robust blues, and beautifully variable Turkmen reds add to the beautiful aesthetic of this beautiful antique Yomud rug.
This fine wool rug is in excellent condition, clean and ready for use in any room.
