Gallery Size Antique Tribal Turkish Kilim Rug 50679
Antique Gallery Size Tribal Turkish Kilim Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Turkish Rugs, Circa Date: 1920 – A veritable flock of geometric figures marches along this antique Turkish Kilim rug, each nearly touching its neighbor, a breath away from interlocking. The shapes are rendered in white, red, blue and black, accented with orange, green and yellow in their interior decorations. Cleverly hatched line-work creates a distinctive visual effect, shifting each shape relative to the red hue that forms the background. Detailed with simple, stark outlines, a variety of small shapes cluster around the larger figures of the pattern. A black border, edged with blurred lines of blue, surrounds the central field. A simple but eye-catching red-trimmed white pattern forms a chain around the antique rug, bright against the dark shade of that outer band.
