APPROX 25-50 YR OLD TURKISH HEREKE HAND KNOTTED WOOL RUG, 7'8'' X 12'2'': This Hereke is a beautifully designed and colored example of a room size rug from this area. There are three diamond shaped medallions going across the center of the field and three elongated medallions at either end of the field. These motifs all have the same colors (pale blue, rust, white, black, and beige) and design that link them. In between these medallions are swirling, art nouveau style vines, leaves, and flowers with birds almost hidden in the midst of them. The rust colored main border frames the dark blue field and helps to complete the design.
