Antique Bergama Turkish Rug, Origin: Turkish Rug, Circa: Late 19th Century – This antique rug features a strikingly graphic design of diamond medallions with finials repeating down the length of this extraordinary Turkish rug. The palette of the carpet is vibrant, with medallions rendered largely in black and yellow boldly set against the brilliant red field. A cooler grayish tan border frames the field, although it vine scroll design maintains the strident geometric drawing of the field. The openness of the design balances the use of rich color, and indeed, it allows the color to take pride of place in the overall composition.
