Antique Turkish Sivas Rug BB5522

Price: $45,000

An early 20th century Turkish Sivas two-toned antique rug having a stepped medallion lattice overall in camel and beige containing weeping willows and floral motifs within a linked medallion border.

With many weaving centers throughout Anatolia, each created an innately Turkish carpet with a distinct signature style native to its specific region. In the fifteenth century, inspired by the example set by the Timurid and Safavid Courts, Turkish artists introduced floral and Chinese motifs, first into ceramic tile-work and textiles, and then adapted into oriental carpet patterns. These designs included elegantly drawn prayer turkish kilim rugs decorated with architectural motifs serving as models for centuries of village weavers of rugs and textiles across Anatolia. Sivas rugs and carpets weavers traditionally used a smaller assortment of color than their Persian counterparts, achieving a remarkable range with only eight or nine colors.
