Antique Tibetan Thangka Carpet-Extremely Rare, Large and Beautiful 1920's
The story that came with it (undocumented) was that it was woven in China for an American Naval Captain stationed there in the 1920's. That's all the history I can provide. It is in near perfect condition. The carpet has all 108 figures required to be in a Thangka of this design and the colors are vibrant with no fading or discoloration. There are no areas that are worn/threadbare or stained. There are some threads on the rear that were "torn" by a cat of mine who briefly used it as a "scratching post" (see photos), but they don't affect the upper side at all. I have kept it rolled up and rarely displayed because I didn't want to risk it being damaged or walked on.

It is a very large carpet measuring 9' 3" wide by 11' 6" long. All proceeds from the sale of this beautiful carpet will be donated to Tibetan Relief Agencies assisting those families dislocated by the illegal takeover of Tibet by China in 1959. If you have questions or would like additional photos, please don't hesitate to ask.
