Default Tekke Bokhara

Hi everyone, another very recent acquisition. I believe it is Tekke, well at least looking at the guls, they seem to be Tekke in origin. Pile is tight, lustrous and in good condition. I gave it a good clean with warm soap and water and the colours came out well. Some small repairs. Dark blue is used in the guls with the odd bit of lighter blue also employed. Some green is also used in the borders. Dimensions are 4 feet 3 inches by 3 feet 5 inches. Over all handle is quite rigid and not floppy though I think the KPSi is reasonably high which might help. Any comments on age, origin etc are most welcome.

Kind regards, Gerry

You are correct: Tekke, after 1930
Enjoy,
Marvin

Agree with Marvin. The colour palette is unusual for Tekke, but the structure looks like Tekke to me, along with the design (of course).
