A Beautiful European Influenced Vintage Turkish Flat Woven Kilim Rug, Weaving Country of Origin: Turkey, Woven Circa Date: Around The Mid 20th Century– Reminiscent of a confectionery with exquisite frosting, this Turkish rug exhibits a chocolate-hued backdrop for a detailed spread of flowers. Two matching golden filigree braces hold bouquets of roses, which seem to spill over their curving arms to fill the center field of this area rug with a profusion of red, orange and pink blossoms among pale green leaves. An extremely narrow margin of white and red lines separates this floral decoration from an outer trim, set over the same rich, dark brown. A light line traces around the Kilim’s border of perfectly stitched roses, each nestled against a set of leaves, anchored by larger bright roses in each corner.
