Tribal Antique Turkish Karapinar Rug 47393, Size: 3'5" x 4'5", Origin: Turkey, Circa: Final Decade of the 19th Century - Here is a beautifully composed antique Oriental rug - an antique Turkish Karapinar carpet, woven in Turkey during the final years of the nineteenth century. Characterized by a distinctly tribal design aesthetic, this antique Turkish rug is a wonderful example of the rare Karapinar style, which is noted by collectors for its steadfast tribal, primitive design proclivities. In this particular example, there are many charming manifestations of traditional, tribal designs - for despite it relative small size, this Karapinar beautifully exhibits noteworthy tribal elements in its borders, its field, and its eccentric medallion. Indeed, the curious arrangement of that central medallion suggests a monumental medallion, as it occupied nearly the entire field, leaving just small patches of soft blue in the corners. Throughout the rug, irregular lines and asymmetry reveal a tribal inclination toward the abstract, infusing this antique Turkish carpet with a unbridled energy.
