TYPE: A tsuktruk woven tibetan ‘above-saddle’ carpet

CIRCA: 1920’s

A beautiful, extremely soft three paneled Masho tightly woven in the tsuktruk (Tsukdurk) style. Lustrous un-dyed very dark brown wool with a striking golden medallion floating in the center panel. Given there is very little wear and no signs of the thick padded backing encountered on other tsukrdruk woven above-saddle carpets, it seems to have been rarely used, probably only on special occasions, and possibly kept more as an heirloom by a wealthy family. A very attractive piece in near perfect condition.
