19th Century Turkish Ghiordes Light Brown Handwoven Wool Rug
A late 19th century Turkish Ghiordes rugs, the light brown field with repeated primitive geometric leaf motifs around a stepped medallion containing Anatolian floral motifs and a floral centerpiece, within a caramel angular flowering vine border.
Since the beginning of their production in the 18th century, antique rugs from the Anatolian town, Ghiordes have mostly been known for their rectilinear, colorful, multi-bordered antique prayer patterns. Ghiordes Turkish rugs often have open fields with mihrabs or hanging lamps and stylized architectural motifs that are found on sixteenth and seventeenth century Ottoman court rugs.
