Antique Erzurum "Flowers" Kilim

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An exquisite example of Anatolian Kilim weaving tradition from a region known with its finely woven masterpieces. Most antique Erzurum Kilims feature a prayer arch design, which must have been popular among the local patrons for whom such fine Kilims were made. This one features a rare design of stylized flowers in exemplary natural colors. A top flight collectible.

(Should not be used as a floor rug, as it is a valuable and delicate antique).
