2'2 x 4'7 Antique Asmalyk Wedding Rug #2793

Regular price $1,035.00

Introducing an exquisite antique Asmalyk wedding rug, steeped in history and imbued with rich symbolism. This gorgeous piece, handwoven with vegetable dyed wool in the late 19th century, boasts a navy blue, red, and ivory lattice pattern surrounded by geometric borders, creating a mesmerizing effect that is sure to captivate any onlooker.

Originally we believe this was used in a traditional Turkmen wedding procession, this pentagon-shaped rug was typically made in pairs and flanked the camel ridden by the bride. As a solitary piece in the BPR collection, this rug is a rare find and a true collector's item.  The intricate motifs woven into this beautiful rug are believed to represent the aspirations of a happy union, fertility, and a long life. These powerful symbols were carefully selected to bless the newlyweds with a prosperous future together, a powerful talisman of good luck.

Though it has some signs of wear, this amazing rug still exudes an undeniable aura of elegance and sophistication. Please see pics for character and condition. It is suitable for the floor or for display purposes on the wall as it can be hung as a stunning piece of wall art. It is truly a work of art from a bygone era of beauty and tradition and will bring charm, style, and culture to any space it calls home.
