Tibetan carpet of an irregular size with a 'stylised' tiger striped center field design that may have been used as a dais / bench cover or for seating, or may have been a custom order for some other specific purpose (i.e. for a younger person to sleep on), as it is somewhat smaller than a 'normal' khaden size. Made with all natural dyes, the central reddish-brown field is filled with stylised tiger stripes in an almost iridescent beautiful abrashed blue - that is partly achieved by mixing some white wool threads with the blue wool - which seems to make the stripes almost shimmer above the carpet. The inner border of pearls is flanked either side by borders of white (un-dyed) wool, while the outer red border mimics the red cloth covered felt borders seen on many Tibetan carpets. There are no reweaves or repairs, the size is 112cm x 55cm (approximately 44in x 21.75in) and is constructed with wool warp and weft and a big 'loose' knot - which yields a lowish knot count - that collectively suggest a relatively early date of origin, that is circa the early 1900’s - 1920. a unique and very attractive piece.
