Small Scatter Size Antique Turkish Silk Rug, Country Of Origin / Rug Type: Turkish Rug, Circa date: 1920’s – This small and elegant antique floral Turkish silk rug combines a gorgeous cranberry color background with intricate white, orange, yellow, and blue floral designs to create a masterpiece that is vibrant, majestic, and aesthetic.
The elongated and narrow runner shape of this small scatter size rug gives it a royal ” red carpet” appearance. However, this Turkish rug is more than just a comfortable stepping place — it is a skillfully rendered relic that is pleasing to the eye as well as the foot.
There are two distinct types of flowers weaved into this rug’s design pattern: a puffy kind, like little clouds, which occupy the two ends of the rug, and pointed petals, like stars, that fill the center space. These two floral patterns work beautifully with each other by both pattern contrast and color similarity, providing the perfect ratio of variability and repetition to create a work of art that is brilliantly fashioned, aesthetically tasteful, and naturally harmonious.
The three thin border designs that contain the inner rectangular floral pattern complete the rug’s facade by giving it a distinct appearance of royal consistency and structure.
The outer border is a simple, thin pink band that ties the entire picture together in a complete and beautiful way. The next border design is consistently patterned with flowers and leaves, complementing wonderfully with its neighbor border, which is similar in pattern but more elaborate and complex.
The overall visual effect of this small floral antique Turkish silk rug is one of mathematical congruence and artistic divergence, fusing both royal grandeur and playful appeal in a way that is rarely matched. This antique Oriental rug is a beautiful relic that will add an alluring charm to any interior design setting.
