Description

A beautiful pale antique Sivas carpet woven in central Anatolia, around the turn of the 20th century.  With a cotton foundation it allows for a finer weave compared to other Turkish carpets such as Oushak or Ushak.  The design is classical and a Persian in influence, a delightful all over floral pattern connecting with vines.  Ivory tones are common with Sivas rugs and allow them to be decorative floor coverings that work easily with many interiors.  The muted border and background make it easy to furnish with, the gentle pink tones are used as highlights for the design.  Nice variation to the dyes, otherwise known as abrash.

Condition wise it does have wear and low pile in places, no holes or major damage.  Fading to the dyes and dye change is common for a piece of this age.  Still a very attractive and useable antique carpet, some losses to the fringes at both ends.  This could be repaired if required.

It has been professionally cleaned and photographed to show its true colours.

Sivas carpets were often commissioned for the West, using elegant curvilinear designs from Persian rugs and intricate floral motifs combined with wide borders with repeating cartouche designs.  This design has been seen in Ardebil carpets, which is the design on this Sivas carpet.  These soft carpets have a lot of decorative appeal and are ideal to furnish around.
