Small Tribal Early Antique Turkish Konya Rug 48875
Small Rare and Collectible Antique Turkish Konya Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Turkish Rugs, Circa Date: 1800 – This bright antique Turkish rug with a geometric design is stunning in its vibrancy, displaying colors that have endured for more than a century. Vivid red combines with rich purple and blue, accented with yellow, pale green and white, to create a figure that almost shimmers with color. Light green, nearly sea-foam lines cross over the purple star that forms the centerpiece, adding a counterpoint as well as forming the octagonal shape. This tribal antique Turkish Konya rug features concentric decorations flanking the symmetrical star add visual contrast, and a dark blue forms the final ring around the figure, embellished with stair-step triangles on every other face. Extra triangles, wrought in pale green and decorated with hook-like attachments, nestle in the four corners of the red space within this tribal antique Turkish rug. A white border, itself edged with yellow, encloses the central area of this antique rug, decorated with colorful diamonds and other geometric shapes.
