Beautiful Antique 19th Century Antique Turkish Ghiordes Rug, Country Of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1890’s — This antique rug displays a cinnamon cream field dominated by a single large, central gold, red, dark brown, and pink floral medallion. It shows a staff sprouting flowers and leaves in an ornately detailed, symmetrical design. Three blossoms extend from the staff on each side in opposite directions. A cluster of connected blossoms surrounds this central point of interest. Single flowers on stems, the blossoms pointing inwards, occupy the corners of the Ghiordes rug in the same location where spandrels might sit. All the flowers reflect and carry forward the same colors as the central medallion. A thick border in the same hue as the field surrounds the rug. A chain of curling leaves interspersed with ruyi symbols in red, gold, pink and dark brown colors decorates this area. An extremely narrow guard border containing an alternating gold and pink design separates the border and the field.
