Tekke banner göl torba.

This lovely very high quality and deep torba is probably from the Akhal oasis made sometime in the 18th century. They have used the Tekke chuval göl which come in two flavours this type with a banner across the top and the other simplified type known as the pocket göl these are both simplified versions of the torba göl.


Balkhan Purple group Tekke torba.
I’m very excited about this Balkhan purple group theses pieces seem to embody an early aesthetic when a dark and rich pallet was a display of wealth as these colours demand a larger quantity of dyestuff. The purple ground is a sort of neutral background hum, it’s subtle opalescence a place of rest for the eye. Tonal deep turquoise green, tonal indigo steel blue and the alizarin red all resonate in this subtle space. Many of these pieces are like fine violins. They have character, and resonate with visual magic. The göls are white and intense red.
