Beautiful and Decorative Paisley Design Antique Turkish Sivas Carpet, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1920’s – This stunning antique Turkish Sivas carpet uses a simple beige palette to define the earthy presence. Though the carpet does not use a great deal of colors, it conveys motion and flow through the use of fine details. Numerous boteh shapes abound within the antique Oriental rug, present not only at the core, where they are most prevalent, but also at the surrounding borders. The large paisley boteh rug designs establish finite flowing shapes, resulting in a unique type of grounding effect that introduces movement in a controlled environment. The edges of the boteh face each other, along the borders, their figure leading the viewer’s attention to the antique Turkish rug’s core, where a sea of floral shapes and subtle boteh figures dominate the landscape.
