922. a feisty old Anatolian Turkish rug

Old to antique Anatolian Turkish rug

922. Provenance: Qashqa'i Confederacy of Tribes, Fars Province, southern Persia

Size: 168cm x 92cm

Age: Circa 1920

Condition: Pretty good for age, with overall low pile & minor losses at ends.

Notes: Only Anatolian rugs use this particular shade of yellow (well, with the exception of some old Rabat Morrocans that emulated), which brings a great sense of fun and 'joie de vivre' to the scene. The pale eggshell-blue field brings a sence of calm decorum to procedings, which could otherwise have become overwhelmed by the intense oranges and yellows. A charming and highly individualistic piece of woven art.
