Antique Tekke Turkmen Ensi Of Classic Design
Antique Tekke Turkmen Ensi of classic design with excellent colour.
Ensi are considered to be traditional ceremonial door hangings for the entrance to the tribal yurt. They also can be used as small floor rugs.
This example is very finely woven with very clear colours, the large double elem panels at the base are beautifully drawn with flowers in the lower panel and large trees in the panel above.
Good condition with slight even wear and good pile.
Hand washed and ready for use or display. This ensi would make a superb wall hanging. A good example of an older age than most that are seen in the market today.
