APPROX 80-100 YR OLD TURKISH PRAYER RUG, HAND KNOTTED WOOL, 3'1'' X 4'5'': This interesting old village style prayer rug has a vibrant red mihrab center with a stepped design leading to the top of the prayer niche. A white and black tree and cross like design are found at the top. In the red field there are only two motifs, including a small arrow pointing to the top of the niche. The red is edged by white and yellow alternating squares that outline the mihrab. The top corners of the field are yellow with an overall pattern of tiny red motifs.
CONDITION: The sides have been redone and parts of one border are missing at each end of the rug but the overall look of the rug is still good.
