Semi-Antique Ozipek Hereke rug in excellent condition
This Ozipek Hereke rug is one of several rare genuine Hereke rugs that we are proud to offer and as with all of our Turkish Hereke rugs, the silk and/or the fringes have not been replaced or restored. Due to their age and rarity, most older Hereke rugs have been repaired or have had their fringes replaces and I am very particular about not offering these types.
The design in this Ozipek Hereke rug features small gold metal in the kelim ends at the top and bottom as well as the signature. Also, the condition of this semi-antique Ozipek Hereke is excellent and based on our estimate it is about 80 years old. It appears to be used as a decor rug only and there are no damaged or worn out areas that required any repairs. Simply a stunning piece and the kind of Persian rug that collectors look for. The Ozipek Hereke rugs are no longer made and for those who know and appreciate the Turkish rugs, you will appreciate a piece like this.
Info About REAL vs. FAKE Hereke Rugs
Due to the large number of inquiries I receive about genuine and fake Hereke rugs and the misinformation that are being peddled by online and rug store retailers, I have created my own YouTube channel where I offer factual information for you like the video below that is about Hereke Silk Rugs. You can see the video if you view this rug page on a laptop or desktop.
If you own or are interested in silk Hereke rugs, please watch this 17 minute video in which I show you real Turkish silk Hereke rugs and the Chinese silk couterparts that are often sold as genuine Turkish rugs.
