Antique Turkish Sivas Rug
Antique Turkish Sivas Rug Description:
This circa-1920 antique Turkish Sivas rug features an elaborate all-over design of muted floral abstractions and arabesques in shades of beige and brown, with interspersed inky blue accents. A thin main border in midnight blue, with scrolling botanical motifs in stark relief as they contrast the soft water color quality of the main design, surrounds the early 20th century antique carpet. The overall presentation of the antique rug has a faded patina characteristic of classic Oriental rug weaving. Decorative antique carpets from Sivas, in the southeast of Turkey in central Anatolia, 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 than other any other antique Turkish carpet.
