"Turkmen Carpet, Chouval Ersari, 90 Cm X 163 Cm, XIXc"
Ersari chouval rug from Central Asia in West Turkestan, from the 19th century measuring 90 cm wide by 163 cm long.
Beautiful piece of ethnology with beautiful colors, red drawing on the earth, midnight blue, pale blue and white.
These rugs can be recognized by their very particular style, the designs and colors of which have remained unchanged for centuries.
The term “chouval” or “joval” denotes a specific form of carpet whose design is in width normally presenting on the back a plain or embroidered kilim, allowing its use as a cushion, when it is padded. It is found suspended at both ends in tents and some yurts, which gives it a plump shape.
Our model is the work of the Ersari, a tribe living in Turkestan.
The field, naturally a beautiful earthy red almost red copper, is covered with midnight blue and white octagons called gul.
Each Afghan or Turkmen tribe has its own gul.
The prerogative of these rugs are the "kotchaks", rams horns that are found almost on all of these magnificent tribal pieces. These carpets honor the guls, large octagons called "gul", originally the gul is a kind of tribal emblem that is called "tamga" in the same way as our coats of arms.
They frame a drawing of twin horns, called "kotchak" or "Bouinouze" The tamga was transmitted from one tribe to another during weddings, but also during wars, during a defeat, the vanquished tribe gave up its gul to the victorious tribe.
The wool used is always very soft, it is taken from under the belly of the sheep, and these pieces are very thin, 2 mm thick.
These rugs are very popular with collectors of pieces from Central Asia.
Dimensions: Width: 90 cm (3 ') x Length: 163 cm (5'4 ")
This rug has been professionally cleaned and environmentally friendly.
