Antique Western Anatolian Bergama Region Village Prayer Rug
Antique Western Anatolian Bergama region village prayer rug of small square size.
A good prayer rug of small almost square size, with a traditional design. The top of the rug above the mihrab is in a soft green with the main field being in red. The field contains a large latch hook medallion along with a star in octagon and floral rosettes. The indigo ground border is of a floral design, possibly carnations.
The rug is in fair condition with some wear and good long soft pile. The sides are ragged and there is one very large old repair to the right hand side of the rug, I have shown this in detail from the front and reverse. There are a few other scattered old repairs which I have also imaged. The rug retains the original kilim end finish at the top end which is decorated with a small piled triangle. There is a small section of the original kilim at the lower end. (The price reflects the condition).
The rug has been hand washed and is ready for use or display. Although repaired the rug would make a great wall hanging.
Age: Circa 1880
Size: 3ft 8in x 2ft 11in (112 x 90cm)
