Object Description

A charming rug that would be a great addition to a variety of spaces. Its tribal charm and character complements both modern and classic settings.

The light blue field, which is very rare, has an exquisite colour variation (abrash) that adds a great depth and richness to the simple drawing, framed by an ivory border. The drawing is generous in proportion in relation to its format and the muted array of natural dyed colours have aged nicely.

This example has artistic design characteristics inspired by earlier Caucasian rugs of the 18th Century.

Is in very good condition, still retaining its original borders and fringes on all sides.

Object History

Anatolian carpets have a rich heritage of rug weaving which began in the 13th century and were amongst the first wave of Oriental carpets that were exported to Europe. Many were seen in iconic paintings of many of the European masters including Memling, Lotto and Hans Holbein. Today these decorative carpets are highly appreciated for their simple designs, soft colours and lustrous wool.

Object Condition

Is in very good condition, still retaining its original borders and fringes on all sides.
