circa 1800-1825 Kula antique Turkish rug measures 4’3” X 6’2” (131 x 189
cm). It is a very beautiful Kula prayer rug with a light blue prayer niche
completely filled with small white tulips surrounded with a three colored
frame in peach to grey green. The ivory spandrels are filled with Ottoman
tulips in red and gold completely surrounded by 17 stripes in various colors
which are also filled with tiny flowers. The stripes are in red, gold, ivory
and blue. The top end is missing the outside border. The bottom end is
complete including the selvedge. The rug is evenly low. There are a couple
of reweaves which are very well done and at least 100 years old. There are
lazy lines visible from the back. This rug is the real deal. The twin to
this rug is photographed in a 100 year old book that I own and it’s listed
early 19th century which to me means 1800-1825. I doubt it. To me
this rug screams 18th century or older. It’s got it all. The
archaic motif. The lazy lines. The ancient repair. But I will err on the
side of caution and advertise as 1st quarter 19th
century although I believe it is 18th century and possibly older.
It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of
