Beautiful and Rare Round Antique Turkish Ottoman Embroidery, Country Of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 17th century – Antique Ottoman embroidery textiles are almost timeless in their technique and design. Originating around the 17th century, this antique Turkish weaving masterpiece uses simple motifs and colors to convey a tranquil feeling more than direct the viewer’s attention from one section of the round size antique Ottoman embroidered textile to the next. In this beautiful antique textile, a subtle, neutral tone is chosen for the background, while the foreground features a delightful mixture of floral motifs. Strong red and blue colors are chosen for the petals and leaves throughout, and the gentle use of outline bordering results in a whimsical design as a whole. Those same colors and forms create branches along the heart of the 17th century Turkish Ottoman embroidered textile, coming together here and there to create circular arrangements.
