Antique Turkish Ghiordes Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Early 20th Century– This Turkish rug is centered with three columns that feature rectangular designs like a trinket cabinet. The two outer columns match each other, and the entire body is symmetrical about the long axis. Balancing red, slate gray, and yellow over a cream field, the designs feature trees, stylized floral patterns and abstract but intricate designs. A wide band forms the border of this rug, filled with a repeating pattern of gold diamond figures, each nestling a red flower in alternating large and small versions. This Ghiordes’ border is edged with smaller strips of cream occupied by stylized red ovals, complementing the design of the wider bar.
