Karakecili Rug Northwest Turkey 19th C Lot 90

Karakecili Kurdish Rug Northwest Turkey 19th C Lot 90 Major Autumn Auction 2005, Selected antique and rare carpets, kilims, flat-weaves and textiles.
Auktion 66 19. November 2005


Lot Nr.: 90

Bezeichnung: KARAKECILI (?)

Herkunftsland: Nordwestanatolien
frühes 19. Jhdt.
Abmessungen: ca. 209 x 103 cm
Schätzpreis in EUR: 2400 €
Fragment eines vermutlich beim Karakecili-Stamm in Nordwestanatolien geknüpften Teppichs, dessen Komposition aus Hexagonen, die wuchtige Hakenrauten einschließen, und kleineren, analogen Figuren in den Zwischenräumen in ihrem streng symmetrischen Aufbau an turkmenische Teppiche erinnert. Konsequent geradlinig und reziprok im Charakter, wäre das Muster ebenso gut für ein Flachgewebe geeignet. Nur wenige Beispiele dieser seltenen Gruppe haben überlebt. Daß unser aus altem, deutschen Privatbesitz eingeliefertes Stück nur etwa die Hälfte eines Teppichs mit ursprünglich sechs vertikalen Reihen sein dürfte, zeigt der Vergleich mit dem vollständigen Lefevre-Exemplar. Der türkischen Abstammung der Gruppe hat jüngst Burns widersprochen, der ein Fragment in seiner Sammlung als kurdische Arbeit des Herki-Stammes in Nordkurdistan klassifiziert. – Linke Hälfte fehlt, auf Leinwand montiert, einige Fehlstellen, starke Braunkorrosion. Rechte Bordürenzone stark beschädigt. Kelimreste am oberen und unteren Abschluß erhalten.

Name: Karakeçili (?)

Origin: North Anatolian
early 19th Cent.
Dimensions: approx 209 x 103 cm
Estimate in euro: 2400 €
Fragment, presumably including one at Karakeçili tribe in northwestern Anatolia knotted rug, the composition of hexagons, the massive Hakenrauten and reminds smaller analogue figures in the gaps in their strictly symmetrical structure of Turkmen carpets. Consistently straight and reciprocal in nature, the model would be suitable as well for a flat fabric. Few examples of this rare group survived. The fact that we brought from the old, privately owned German unit is probably only about half of a carpet with the original six vertical rows, a comparison with the complete copy of Lefevre. The Turkish race has the group recently objected to Burns, a fragment in its collection as the work of the Kurdish tribe in northern Kurdistan Herki classified. - Left half is missing, mounted on canvas, a few flaws, strong brown corrosion. Rights Borders area heavily damaged. Kelimreste at the top and bottom closure obtained.

Karakeçili tribe Kurdish and Turkmen

"An example of the reverse development is the Karakeçili tribe, semi-nomads living on
the slopes of the Karacadag mountain to the southwest of Diyarbakir. They are
kurdophone, but according to local tradition they were originally Türkmen from
Western Anatolia, who had been settled in this region by Sultan Selim I after the
Ottoman conquest. Sections of the Karakeçili who stayed behind in Western Anatolia
retained their Türkmen identity; the ones settled on Karacadag gradually Kurdicised, as
a result of intermarriage and the incorporation of Kurdish allies into the tribe. This
process must have been completed before the middle of the 18th century, for the
descendants of a section of these Karakeçili who moved to Haymana (South of Ankara)
around that time also continue to speak Kurdish.5
