TYPE: Three medallion ‘warp-faced-back’ wangden valley carpet – SOLD 

CIRCA: 1900 – 1910

A three medallion warp-faced-back ‘Wangden’ carpet (or ‘drumze’) that shows the classic circular medallion synonymous with Wangden Valley manufacture, along with four small red renditions of both the yungdrung (swastika) and sauwastika (reversed swastika) motifs around the center medallion in the main green field. The main inner border is of pearls, while the main outer border appears to be of an interlocking ‘running dog’ design. It has thick woolen pile and a mix of Yak hair and wool base, with the yak hair predominate, and ‘frilly’ edges all round. All natural dyes, with a beautiful green and a saturated red. A fine example of the Wangden Valley genre. It is in very good condition. ALREADY SOLD.
