A vintage 7×12 Kilim rug, handwoven in wool originating from Turkey circa 1950-1960. Enjoying a play of tribal motifs and medallions with an especially present, cool blue marrying rich red and brown in the prevailing colorway for a unique presence underfoot. Punctuations of black alternating with blue detailing lend the more traditional symmetry a subtly more engaging sense of movement, connoting a very thoughtful approach on behalf of the weave.
A unusually large-size piece with meticulously detailed field and wrapping borders, exemplifying its period. In good condition for its lineage and well suited for the floor in a wide array of projects.
Connoisseurs may further note an emphasis on the classic ram’s horn motif in several variations prominent in the cultural motifs of this design.
