Antique West Anatolian Bergama Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa: 1850 – Here is a beautifully woven antique rug, featuring an especially alluring composition – an antique West Anatolian Bergama carpet that was woven in Turkey during the middle years of the nineteenth century. This comely work is characterized primarily by its stunning and vibrant palette of reds, blues, and ivories. Bounded at the top and the bottom by simple blue and red stripes, this carpet is complex just about everywhere else. Inner and outer borders of ivory surround a primary border of bright red which is crowded with geometric detail elements. These are stirring – beautifully drawn and eccentric, these geometric elements give the carpet a rich sense of authenticity. Within the field, a similar aesthetic continues. Three central pillars stand at the center of the carpet, set against a swirling red and blue background. Despite its eccentricities and irregularities throughout, this antique Bergama carpet primarily communicates a sense of completion and precision of execution. A unique example, this antique Bergama carpet is a truly compelling antique carpet.
