TURKISH HEREKE HAND KNOTTED SILK PRAYER RUG, 2' x 3': This extremely finely woven silk rug has a soft palette of beiges and blues with a delicate tracery pattern that flows from the base of the prayer niche to the top of the field. The top of the niche or mihrab is outlined by ribbon like lines in shades of blue. There are many other colors of silk that are beautifully blended and placed to create a beautiful pattern. The deep blue field of the border frames the field of the rug and the edge border has an embossed look due to the main design motifs being the only knotted part of this border. Notice the pretty little birds! Condition is excellent.
