Tribal Antique Turkish Bergama Scatter Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This tribal and collectible antique Turkish Bergama rug, from the late 19th century, establishes an attractive symmetrical design that features star designs surrounded by diamonds. Each individual eight pointed star design symbol resembles a bright sunburst. A diamond within each one pins down the design while adding interest to the overall composition of the antique Bergama rug. A detailed border breaks up the overall pattern with unique design twists of carefully selected colors. The palette is a bold mix of sunny daffodil, bright teal and vibrant tangerine. The colors are further accented by alabaster and latte, which help ground this beautiful and rare antique Turkish rug. The coarser weaving technique adds texture and variety to the detail-rich design, providing the viewer with more points of interest to browse over. What this piece lacks in physical size, it more than makes up for in the beauty of its design, colors and texture.
