From the late 19th century, this is stunning antique Sivas carpet, with a rare Boteh design, the off-white palette with soft pinks and yellows is wonderful.  With a cotton foundation it allows for a finer weave compared to other Turkish carpets such as Ushak. The design is classical and Persian in influence, but much more open with an exquisite palette and gentle design.

Sivas carpets were often commissioned for the Western market, using elegant curvilinear designs from Persian rugs and intricate floral motifs combined with wide borders with repeating cartouche designs.  This design variation can also be seen on Tabriz carpets, a wonderful muted carpet that have a lot of decorative appeal and are ideal to furnish around.  Generally their palette is very soft and the wool used of good quality and soft under foot.
