TYPE: An over-sized  Tibetan khaden

CIRCA: 1920

Another over-sized khaden, but again, not quite sapden size, featuring rows of window-like motifs (a very very early version of Windows 95 maybe?) in subtle colours on a lustrous wool base; a design which makes for an overall very pleasing, somewhat random whimsical look. Mostly, if not all, natural dyes and undyed wool. A small very old repair in the very center does nothing to detract from the beauty and sense of presence this carpet has. A unique piece with a thick ‘chunky’ handle.  (For a very similar example of this design from the early 20th century, see page 104 in the excellent book entitled Of Wool And Loom by Trinley Chodrak & Kesang Tashi, pub. 2000.)
