Vintage Turkish Hereke Carpet
Vintage Turkish Hereke Carpet Description:
An early 20th century Hereke Turkish carpets, the camel field with an allover trellis of enlarged feathery leaves, angular vinery and palmettes within a dense dark brown palmette and flowering vinery border.
The Middle East is historically known as a source of elegant, beautiful rugs and Turkey is one of the most well-renowned sources of those rugs. Of particular interest are the Hereke rugs made in the small coastal town of Hereke, Turkey. Antique rugs are truly beautiful pieces of art, and it's truly mind-boggling to think that so many beautiful pieces came from a single town.
