TYPE: A tibetan horse or yak cover / blanket

CIRCA: 1920’s

A trapezoidal shaped takheb carpet meant for use as horse or yak cover / blanket. The lower portion features a design of alternating black and red cross-like (double dorje?) motifs on an un-dyed wool field. The bottom is separated from the top by a strip of pearls. The top panel then turns to an abrashed red field with black and un-dyed wool ‘cross’s. The natural red dye has migrated somewhat, noticeable mainly in the short fringe that is folded under along the top, and here and there at the bottom also. A decorative piece.
