Item Ref



This most unusual rug was made by Kurdish tribes in eastern Anatolia during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. With a fairly limited colour palette but with spectacular glossy wool, the indigo-blue ground contains a large red central rectangle containing various symbols including, in the centre, a double-headed birds-head symbol. Emanating from both ends are four smaller lozenges.
Although the colour palette is limited, the two minor borders are highlighted in ivory wool and a stunning aubergine colour is used throughout. This rug, which is in excellent condition, has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
Size: 1.60m x 1.22m (5' 3" x 4' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
