Antique Turkish Hereke Rug

Price: $20,000

This imposing antique rug constitutes the essence of Turkish artistry and impeccable craftsmanship. It is maintained in the color palette basing on the most significant Turkish dye – indigo. Pale blue main field and ivory borders are finished with more pronounced touches of sapphire and delicate strokes of light gray. These soothing shades emphasize the intricate and sublime design which takes us straight to the magnificent royal gardens full of thriving Turkish nature.

The main field is adorned with palmettes, Shah Abbas motifs, roses and peonies – a classic oriental symbol of power –interconnected by a meandering thicket of vinery and foliage. This incredible abundance is enclosed within a series of equally compelling borders with further palmettes and peonies surrounded by flowering climbers and foliage.

The antique Turkish hereke rug was meticulously hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. Only due to such thorough making it could survive until this day in excellent condition and will surely serve its owners for many years. This sapphire beauty, permeated with the mystery and recherché charm of Turkish, is going to easily fit into contemporary interior décors due to its timeless elegance and versatile appeal.
