20th century Anatolian carpet.

Anatolia, the western region of Turkey, has a long-standing rug-weaving tradition, dating at least as far back as the 13th Century. 

As the explorer Marco Polo once wrote, ‘Here they make the most beautiful silks and carpets, and in the most beautiful colours.’ 

It is these carpets, among the first to reach the European market in the Early Modern era, that can be spotted in many of the paintings of the Old Masters, including those of Holbein, Vermeer, and Reubens. 

Today these decorative carpets are highly appreciated for their simple designs, soft colours and lustrous wool. This impressive Anatolian carpet was finely hand woven in the last 30 years, with an array of vegetable-dyed colours including terracotta, ivory, green and light blue. 

The simple, bold graphic design is inspired by earlier examples of the mid 19th century. 

A highly decorative carpet, in excellent condition, with a grand scale drawing that would add charm and character to a variety of settings, rare in this large format.
