Salor or Tekke Torba, 125 x 55 cm. late 19 th. century. Another enigmatic Turkomen puzzle. The design clearly modeled on an earlier Salor weaving. It has the characteristic cross and diamond elim and dark blue kilim strip on top. The pile is dense and thick. Yet, the weaving technique lacks the deeply depressed warps and resembles that of the Tekke. Perhaps the Tekke were so taken by their victory over the once so mighty Salors, that they copied their own trophies of tribal warfare. Cochineal ground color. The vermillion red has no faded tips and appears to be of natural origin. Very interesting piece in excellent full-piled condition.
