Oriental Rug Auction News

Stockholm's Auktionsverk is hosting an important sale of fine Art & Antiques on the 5th December 2018. Included in the sale is a rare antique Salor Turkmen trapping from a Swedish collection (lot 108). The Trapping dates from the mid 19th century, and has a Kejebe design with three medallions or gols with four opposing kejebe devices between them. After the 1850's the Salor tribe was greatly reduced in size and their weaving's almost ceased to exist. These eight pointed star medallion trappings were thought to be used much like an asmalyk in the bridal caravan.
