A beautiful circa 1920 Bessarabian Kilim with an unusual design. We have not come across a Kilim of this type with this circular floral pattern in this size. Wonderful pretty pale blues, hints of yellow and subtle pinky reds. A very attractive kilim in lovely condition. A few very small old repairs but nothing major to report. Supplied with our anti-slip underlay this can be laid on any floor type, which helps keep them secure, flat and safe on the floor.
Bessarabian rugs and carpets are the commonly given name for rugs in pile and tapestry technique originating in Russian provinces as well as Ukraine and Moldova during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Some scholars will classify flat-woven carpets as Bessarabian, while referring to knotted-pile carpets as Ukrainian. They are predominantly from an area corresponding to modern Bulgaria and Romania. Produced under late Ottoman rule, they stand right on the cusp of European and Oriental carpet weaving.
