Antique Turkish Ghiordes Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is an impressive antique Ghiordes rug, woven in Turkey around the turn of the twentieth century. This attractive piece is characterized primarily by its impressive level of ornamentation and detail work, as well as a complementary color pallet creams, blues and reds. Beginning with the outermost border and working inward, this rug offers a series of exciting design elements consistent with the tribal aesthetics of the Ghiordes weavers. Beautiful floral elements are stacked along the ivory border that frames the entire composition, setting the action for a piece that cleverly inverts foreground and background colors as one moves inward. Next is a soft blue border, also richly decorated with vegetative detail work – this time, with a series of colored leaves. A pair of narrow inner borders separates the frame from the field, which features a striking allover tribal pattern. An impressive and appealing antique rug, this Ghiordes piece from Turkey represents the finest trends in traditional tribal design.
