Large Oversized Antique Turkish Ghiordes Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa date: 1850 – This impressive antique Turkish Ghiordes rug has a grand medallion design derived from classical Turkish forerunners. The hexagonal medallion descended from small type Ghiordes rugs of the eighteenth century occupies much of the field, surrounded by four monumental boteh or paisley motifs serving as corner-pieces. A scatter of smaller floral motifs fill the medallion and the botehs, with a host of pinwheel flowers strewn across the rest of the field Several narrow borders frame the field, each with vine-scroll designs made up of leaves and palmettes strung end to end. The soft salmon and mauve palette along with the lustrous wool pile make this a supremely elegant and decorative rug like the great Oushak carpets produced nearby.
