Antique Bessarabian Kilim Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa: 1900 -This dynamic and exciting antique Oriental rug – a Bessarabian piece made in Turkey some time around the turn of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This beautiful antique piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. Lovely little peonies on stems repeat in rows across the deep tan ground of this charming antique Bessarabian Kilim. Each of them leans gracefully to the left, imparting a gentle swaying rhythm to the overall design. Only a thin green band and zig-zag serve as a border to enclose or frame the composition, affirming the essential restraint and simplicity of the piece. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its stunning design and grand composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
