Very few truly ancient small Tekke rugs with the classic Uriuk design have survived unlike the more numerous larger main carpets. This rug has been restored using patches from another contemporary piece and thus the work is reversible - see before and after photos. There are losses to the side border but has been resolved with a new selvedge and the ends are now secured the work involving slight losses again.
• First half 19th cent or older
