Prayer Rug, Possibly Aksaray Region, Central Anatolia



Item Ref



This very rare and beautiful little prayer rug was possibly made in the Aksaray area of central Anatolia and could date to the late 18th/early 19th century. It has wonderful, natural, saturated colours in a very simple design format. The madder-red field and golden-yellow mihrab are simply stunning. The rug has had some sympathetic restoration to small areas on each side and in part of the lower main border - carried out expertly in Turkey. To date, I have not been able to find anything published which is of similar type?
Size: 1.12m x 0.89m (3' 8" x 3' 0").
Viewing by appointment only.
