This vintage 3×5 rug is a bold new addition to Rug & Kilim’s Mid-Century Pasha Collection. This line is a commemoration, with rare curations we believe to hail from multidisciplinary Turkish designer Zeki Müren.
Hand-knotted in wool circa 1960-1970, this piece is a rare pictorial rug like few ever curated in Müren’s work. Its design depicts a leaping tiger and tree in beige and brown hues over a chartreuse green field. Keen eyes will further admire black and red accents made to look like detailing in this piece. Though extremely collectible even for his works, its unusual, playful colors and daring graphic nature exemplify Müren’s sense of attitude that distinguishes his work.
Further on the Condition:
This mid-century tiger rug further enjoys good condition and a healthy full pile—another rare find in Müren’s works.
