Antique Turkish Keysari Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa: 1910 – Here is a truly fascinating and beautifully composed antique Oriental rug – an antique Keysari rug, woven in Turkey during the first decade of the twentieth century. Characterized by an extremely finely woven composition, this antique Turkish carpet features both intricately drawn geometric detail work, as well as impeccably woven animal figures throughout. Setting the stage is an incredibly detailed series of golden borders, characterized by supremely fine line work. Segueing from these borders to the field, one encounters golden corner pieces, each decorated with a bird and lion figure, as well as flowering vine scrolls. These corner pieces beautifully frame the action of the field, the background of which is a vibrant red that contrasts delightfully with the golden detail work within and without. A marvelous procession of deer, lions, birds, dragons and other animals surround a splendid central medallion. Golden cypress trees add further symbolism and grandeur to this remarkable carpet.
