Antique Turkish Hereke Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – This exceptional antique Turkish rug from the famous carpet producers of Hereke showcases a superb neoclassical design tailored to European tastes. Originally home to the imperial carpet manufactory of the Ottoman Empire, Hereke has a truly cosmopolitan design repertoire that was expanded further when general carpet sales were approved at the end of the 19th century. This beautiful antique carpet displays an opulent baroque repeating pattern set in a perfectly square composition ideal for traditional interiors. Architectural sconces and dimensional acanthus-like figures bracket rosy carnation blossoms and bouquets that are set over the chic powder blue ground. Decorative multi-part guardbands and posy-filled bands surround the regal main borders, which feature similarly elegant scrolls that have an architectural formality ideal for cozy cottages and the most regal estates.
