antique melas rug central anatolia

Antique Melas Rug, Central Anatolia.



Item Ref



In this early Melas rug made at the beginning of the 19th century, we see the influence of the earlier and highly collectable so-called 'Transylvanian' rugs of the 17th and 18th centuries.
This early Melas rug from central Anatolia is spectacular and very rare. I love the depiction of cypress trees in the lower half of the red field and the powerful main border design - possibly zoomorphic!
Size: 1.73m x 1.13m (5' 8" x 3' 9").
