Striking trapezoidal shaped Tibetan carpet known as a takheb, which was meant for use as a horse or yak cover / blanket. The lower portion exhibits a multi coloured design, with multiple window-like squares enclosed within red squares which are themselves enclosed in an abrashed blue trellis. The various coloured 'windows' are then orientated in an angular direction, with a horizontal strip featuring the 'running t' design separating the lower windowed portion from the subtly abrashed upper orange panel. (a similar designed carpet - but with smaller 'windows' - can be seen published on page 51, Woven Jewels; Tibetan Rugs from Southern California Collections.) It has full pile, with cotton warp and wool weft, and the rich lustrous dyes used appear to be predominately all natural. There are no repairs or alterations and the size is 93cm vertically x 130cm across bottom x 98cm across top. (approximately 36.5in x 51in x 38.5in respectively). a beautiful piece from the 1920's with a very strong presence in excellent condition.
