Handsome Hereke - 1940s Antique Turkish Rug - Palace Size Carpet - 14' x 20' ft
Size: 14' x 20' ft
Woven in the town of Hereke, in a factory established by the Sultan of Turkey and subsidized by him. The majority of these used traditional oriental designs instead of their own Turkish design. Master weavers were imported to weave and supervise the weaving. This accounts for the fact that many of these – perhaps half of the output – were in oriental designs. Many did employ the designs of the famous Turkish Ghiordes.
Good condition! Professionally washed and cleaned. No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original. As shown in pictures.
