12296 Konya, Turkey, 19th C (2nd half)
This rug with a distinctive apricot field is from the area around Konya in central Anatolia. Its thick wool and larger knots may indicate that it was woven as a sleeping rug or yatak. The colorful lappet ends reflect classical Ottoman influence as do the stylized tulips emanating from and within the medallions. The bold latch-hook ornament surrounding the two medallions is particularly well drawn with barber-poll centers and a color shift from green to blue that adds extra life to the composition.
11970 Kurdish Rug, Eastern Turkey, 19th C (2nd Q)
The design type of this carpet harkens back to a classical OttomanTurkish variant known as “large pattern Holbein’due to the proliferation of the type in the paintings of the sixteenth century master painter of the same name. The spirit of this weaving, however, is distinctly Kurdish. It was woven with the finest wool available in Eastern Anatolia, which in turn was some of the finest softest wool available in the world. The vivid colors and copious use of white compliment the bold and varied elements of design. Each of these is intriguing in its own right and maintain their own gravity while at the same time aiding in a powerful overall composition.
