Antique Turkish Sivas Rug BB5578 13'2" × 21'6" $80,000
An early 20th century Turkish Sivas antique oriental rugs, the abrashed sand field with an intricate allover trellis of flowering vinery and miniature palmettes within a series of floral meander stripes in dark blue, dusty rose, ivory and ice blue.
Decorative antique carpets from Sivas in the southeast are finely woven and formal, tending to interpret the classical Persian style with central medallions and floral infill. A palette of soft and pale gelato tones in the typical antique Sivas rug makes it more feminine and sugary than other any other antique Turkish carpet. In the early nineteenth century, on the outskirts of Instanbul, the Hereke carpet workshop was established, becoming famous for producing exceptional, finely woven carpets of outstanding technical ability.
