#7770 Chodor

This circa 1840 Turkoman Chodor Oriental Rug measures 6’8” X 9’3” (203 x 282 cm). It has a medium to dark chocolate brown field with a diamond shaped motif in pale red, beautiful green, dark blue and ivory. Each row of these diamond shaped guls are separated by a very asymmetrically drawn lightning bolt design running vertically. The ‘Turkmen Line’ border seen here is considered one of the archetypal Turkomen borders. The rug is very interesting. Chodors are the earliest Turkomen carpets made. The ones with the different color ‘ertmen’ guls are always woven before 1880. The rug is 99% full pile with no foundation showing. The kilim ends are about 6-8” wide with horizontal lines which are red at one end and blue at the other. It is in fantastic condition and the wool is exceedingly fine. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $60.00.
