Antique Circa. Mid 19th C. Turkish Ghiordes Prayer Rug Fabulous Condition - Rare For Sale
This is a beautiful example of an antique Turkish prayer rug, a Ghiordes from the 1850's or older, in incredible intact condition.
This prayer rug was made in the town of Gordes or Ghiordes in prayer rug format, most likely never used as a prayer rug. Ghiordes prayer rugs have always been highly sought after. This rug has a full pile and absolutely no defects, and could be both used as a floor rug, or as a fantastic wall hanging. It has at least 15 different colors. It has the classic "apple blossom and leaf" border often related to as a clown face. This rug will make a fabulous accent in any room, my recommendation would be to be only used as a wall hanging piece now, to preserve its integrity. It has no holes, flat spots reweaves, it is in its original condition, unusualin-itselfto find such a fabulous intact piece.
All 100% wool, the foundation is as follows: Warps and wefts are 2 strand natural un-dyed wool with 8 x 8 Symmetrical Turkish double knots equals a kpsi of 64, which is absolutely 100% typical of its heritage. It has 3-cord selvages (pristine) and ends with inch kilims and fringes which are 100% intact. The pile is 100% natural dyed wool or in Turkish "kok boyu" which literally translated mean "root dye".
Condition: 100% complete and fantastic. No repairs, or reweaves, holes or any other defects whatsoever.
