 This is a scare example of a Khamseh tribal kelleh or Khan carpet, made either for a tribal Khan as an audience carpet or as a special commission for a notable property. 

 The carpet is of fine weave for its size, it has a single row of ten ivory ground latch hook linked medallions, each medallion contains pecking chickens and floral rosettes. The most outstanding feature of this carpet is the field; every inch is covered with small tribal designs of birds, animals, tribal devices and a number of people. The inner border is of pecking chickens and the main border is of a classic Khamseh design. 

 The Carpet has medium pile and even wear aside from slightly heavier wear in places. The wool quality and colours are outstanding. There are a number of professional repairs to the carpet that were carried out recently in Turkey. The carpet is now offered in showroom condition. The carpet is also of a very useful large country house hallway size.

The carpet has been hand washed and is ready for normal domestic use or display.
