This phenomenal antique Bokara main carpet displays a stunning collection of Tekke guls and minor Gurbaghe guls enclosed by superb borders and graphic end pieces.
Bokara Rug, Caucasus c. 1900 – This archetypal antique Bokara main carpet showcases a stunning pattern of allover guls rendered in magnificent red hues that are paired with crisp white accents and midnight blue details. The expansive field is dotted with classic Tekke elephant’s foot guls and lesser known Gurbaghe guls that are recognized by their distinctive barred ends and roof-like contours. The modular tiles have a traditional repeating pattern form with center and corner decorations that create larger tiled blocks. In a traditional Bokara manner, the borders and heavily decorated end pieces feature an original assortment of beautifully drawn symbols that are rooted in history and superstition. The spectacular main borders are dotted with protective burdock symbols represented as octagonal ram’s horn shields that are framed by radiant extensions, which complement the latch-hook figures depicted in the decorative end pieces.
