Tibetan khaden, or ‘bed size’ carpet. Six bats - a symbol for happiness because of the Chinese name for bat is fu, which is also the word for happiness - are seen suckling nectar from two central flowers. The wide main border is of the 'section' type, with flowers in the individual cartouche's, and star-like floral(?) emblems anchor the four corners, while the maroon narrow outer border mimics the oft seen red felt border on old carpets from Tibet. Mostly all natural dyes, the pink being certainly in question. The center field red/maroon is quite saturated and nicely abrashed throughout. Tight weave, short pile, the carpet shows even wear throughout, although there is a small area of low pile wear in the center field to the right of the central flowers and the bat on the right, but overall it is in very good condition. a solid piece circa the 1920’s. Wool warp and cotton weft, size 147cm/58in x 91cm/36in.
