Antique Turkish Hereke BB6181 3'9" × 4'10"

This circa-1880 antique Turkish Hereke rug features an elaborate design of geometric abstractions and corner brackets at the top part of the rug in lilac and pink, leaving an open space of warm beige. Thick multiple borders with floral abstractions and arabesques complete the look of the late 19th century antique carpet. In the early nineteenth century, on the outskirts of Istanbul, the Hereke carpet workshop was established, becoming famous for producing exceptional, finely woven carpets of outstanding technical ability. These antique Hereke rugs often feature luxurious materials such as silk and metal-thread worked into designs, emulating the antique Persian carpets of the Ottoman and Safavid Court workshops. Today, Hereke carpets and rugs are still made with the traditional patterns of the Ottoman sultan, Abdülmecid I, as well as both traditional Anatolian and contemporary figurative patterns.(SOLD)
