An impressive antique Turkish Kilim of large size, woven in the Oushak region of Western Turkey. In near perfect state of preservation with brilliant colors, this Kilim is contemporary with the many antique Oushak carpets woven at end of the 19th century to meet the increasing demand in the US and Europe. Back in Istanbul (Constantinople), the declining capital of the Ottoman Empire, large kilims like this were favored as summer carpets in the homes of the wealthy. This one certainly transports us back in time, perhaps to a long gone "yali", an elegant seaside mansion on the shores of the Bosphorus. As a dealer, it is very exciting to find an antique piece in such good state of preservation and in its original glory.
