Early 20th Century Botanic Turkish Sivas Sandy Beige Mauve Brown Teal Wool Rug BB7098 9'2" × 11'10" $25,000
Sivas rugs are celebrated as some of the most well-made and decorative of room-sized Turkish rugs. The antique Turkish Sivas rug before your eyes enchants with its firm structure and abrashed design that exudes a note of etherealness and mystery. Both its main field and the series of consecutive borders carry meandering floral motifs including classics like palmettes and vines, which are gently outlined and slightly faded.
The abrasion, widely appreciated by antique rugs’ connoisseurs, is caused by natural dyes that sometimes lose their pigmentation over time. Nonetheless, this process adds character to the design and makes each rug even more unique. The combination of sandy beige, mauve, light brown and teal creates a truly elegant and versatile color palette that will easily fit into any kind of interior arrangement.
As befits antique rugs from Sivas, this one distinguished itself with firm and dependable structure. It was knotted by hand of good quality wool which prevents its pile from shedding. If properly maintained, this piece of Oriental art will withstand years of usage in ideal condition, bringing in warmth and recherché charm.
