Rare antique Tekke tribal Turkoman 'ensi,' circa 1900, 48x61 inches. This collectible rug belonged to my great-uncle, a photographer, who traveled widely in the early to mid 1900s and collected tribal art. It was woven by the Tekke subtribe of the Turkoman tribe of Central Asia, around 1890-1900. It is in excellent condition for its age. All natural colors. No repairs. 'Ensi or engsi' means 'door curtain' in the language of the Turkomans. This would have hung at the entrance of the tribal yurt or tent, and would unlikely have been used anywhere else. This piece is typically finely woven in glossy wool in natural dyes. Can easily be shipped. It weighs about 20 pounds. Call, email or text if interested show contact info
