Antique Turkish Ghiordes Carpet, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa date: 1900 — This antique Turkish carpet represents the best ideals of elegantly understated design. Two primary gold borders frame the softer shades of beige and cream that act as the backgrounds to their respective sections in the carpet. The rich honeyed gold borders are, themselves in turn, framed by eggshell white trimming, with simple leaf-like shapes dancing within each of the bounds. At the center of the carpet is a collection of beautiful flowers and stems, eclectic in their arrangement, and with plenty of space given between them to showcase the centering colors of the background itself, creating in this antique rug a visual of fallen leaves on a luxurious palace floor.
Two beautiful golden borders laced with eggshell white trimming frame soft layers of cream and beige cascading around light dancing pink flowers that stand tall and transform into vibrant and fun geometric shapes of their own.
