"Old Kirsehir Carpet, Anatolia, Turkey, 102 Cm X 166 Cm, Early 20th Century"
Old Kirsehir or Kir-chéhir carpet, originating from Anatolia in Turkey at the beginning of the 20th century, warp, weft, and woolen velvet presenting a Mihrab with double medallions.
The first has a pearl gray and white background, the other, cherry red and yellow, each one carries within it a bouquet representing a tree of life.
The triangular top of the Mihrab is carved into a staircase, and bears hooks without ornamentation, except for the seedling of flowers, the S, as well as the lantern suspended in the center.
Around and above the niche, there are decorations of flowers, stylized yellow and wheel.
The main border is rich with a very elaborate decoration of flowers, cherry red, yellow, and pearl gray, of a very great harmony.
The braids along the border take up the motif of the zigzag line, symbolizing water or eternity that can be found on rugs from Anatolia and the Caucasus.
The Kirsehir are part of a less well-known group, but with particularly original designs that Eastern Turkey produced.
The Kirsehirs and their neighbors, the Moudjour rugs, have a geometric decoration that can be explained by the mountainous situation of these two villages in south-eastern Turkey.
The floral element on the Kirsehir is always very stylized and it is sometimes difficult to discern them, the basic colors are cherry red and pastel green. There are similarities to the Moudjours, but the colors are much darker and the staircase niches are of a single shade, which leads to confusion between these two styles of rugs in certain denominations and presentations.
Our model is a fine example of this group and of this wonderful knotting job, in very good condition, slight lack of fringes is visible but in no way detracts from the beauty of this very beautiful bright piece.
