Antique Tekke Turkoman Carpet
Turn of the century Turkoman! The most important of the Turkoman tribes in the nineteenth century was the Tekke. They occupied most of the habitable part of what is now the Turkoman S.S.R. (Turkmenistan) between the Caspian ea and the River Amu Darya. In the course of the first half of the century their territory expanded to engulf that of other tirbes, in particular the Salor and later the Saryk in the valley of the Murghab between the Merv (Mary) oasis and the Afghan frontier. 7'x 11'10"
