TYPE: A tiger striped takyeb, for the forehead of a horse or a yak

CIRCA: 1920’s

While by no means rare, a not often seen tiger striped Tibetan takyeb used as a decoration for the forehead of a horse or a yak. The main field was once a burnt orange colour that has faded evenly over time through the pile depth (as opposed to just ‘tip-fade’), with the original colour still just visible in a few spots around the edges (having once been covered by backing material that has been removed at some point) and on the back. The stripes themselves are a solid un-dyed brown wool.
