TYPE: A tiger striped Tibetan carpet

CIRCA: early 1900’s

An odd size Tibetan carpet that was possibly used as a dais / bench cover or for seating, or may have been a custom order for some other specific purpose. The central reddish-brown field is filled with stylised tiger stripes in an abrashed almost iridescent blue that seems to almost shimmer above the carpet. The inner border of pearls is flanked either side by borders of mixed very light blue and white (un-dyed) wool, while the outer red border mimics the red cloth covered felt seen on many Tibetan carpets. A unique piece.
