Collectible Rare Antique Tribal Turkish Bergama Rug, Weaving Origin: Turkey, Circa / Date: 19th Century – A design of diamond medallions with latch-hook contours repeats in allover symmetry on this outstanding antique Bergama carpet. The medallions along the central axis are rendered in single colors, while those to the sides are quartered, giving the composition a dynamic spontaneity. The main border has a classic diamond lattice pattern derived from the classic Turkish rugs of the early Ottoman period, with minor borders of checkers and barber poles to add a subtle framing reinforcement. But however striking the design may be, it is the palette of rich reds, blues, terracotta and ivory that makes this piece so extraordinary, even among the very best Bergama rugs.
