    This is a silk detailed Hereke rug from Turkey, measuring 165 x 104cm (5'4"x3'4"). it was made around the last quarter of the 20th century with having a beautiful central medallion surrounded with much-detailed arabesques, foliage and spandrels in similarly geometric floral motifs in the boarder.  I would like to draw your attention to the busy colour combination in very much muted and dyed tones throughout.. 

    Reference to Hereke Rugs: Carpet production is a relatively recent occurrence in the Hereke area in Western Turkey. The carpet weaving in this region was first introduced during early 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. It is now source of some of Turkey’s most sophisticated carpets, which are distinguished by their elegance and sometimes use of gold Threads in the weaving silk carpets. It is fair to assume that the style in Hereke rugs was inspired by Persian and French designs with mainly having splendid palmettes and other floral elements in a purely curvilinear style as well as central medallions and wide boarders. Some of these wonderful rugs were wool, many in large room sizes; others were made in very fine knotting, with silk pile. In both types, the technique of embossing - the shearing of the pile to different heights to throw certain designs into relief – was first executed. The antique Hereke silk rugs were presented to visiting royalty and other distinguished foreign visitors, including Queen Victoria and the Empress Eugenie of France. All genuine Hereke of this period are signed in Arabic Calligraphy which has been the trademark for these wonderful pieces ever since.
