Antique Tibetan Khaden Rug

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES
Dating to early 20th century, possibly 19th century and in superb, original condition.  Featuring a simple, elegant design which has been well drawn in wonderful pastel tones.

Tibetan carpets were only made in a few formats and this one, at 6ft x 3ft,  is a typical khaden or sleeping carpet made to cover a bed or raised sleeping platform. The soft, muted colour palette and lack of a border mark it out as a rare early example. (The wider range of synthetic dyes available from the early 20th century stimulated production of much more colourful, busy and elaborate designs than this).

The pile is soft and evenly worn throughout with wear to the top pile in a few small places, barely visible. The borders and selvages are original. The selvages are in perfect condition. One end now has short fringes where it has been cut down, the other end has full, intact fringes with the original kilim in place. One corner of this fringe has some damage and is a little shorter here. There are staple marks in one corner. These are not damage as such, but they are visible as the pile is darker here where it was pushed down by the staples over many years and not subject to fading.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

By Appointment
Sheffield

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
