This 1st quarter 19th century Melas measures 36 X
411 (109 X 155cm). It has a light rust or dark coral field with a tree of life
motif and tulips lining the vertical borders on the inside
containing flower head motifs of apple blossoms and two nicely drawn tobacco leafs
in blue and tobacco color. The pale tobacco color major border has as its main motif the
goose foot separated with a nut gall. The outer border is
carnations split with a tulip on an ivory ground. There is lots of aubergine in the rug.
Check out the bottom end where they have gone crazy with the border and ended with
triangular lappets. This rug is in great condition. The buyer pays the shipping with
insurance of $50.00.
