Semi-Antique Hereke rug in excellent condition
This 10/10 quality Hereke rug is one of a handful of pieces that we are offering and it is an authentic Turkish piece and not a copy as I explain in the video that you can watch below. Since Hereke rugs have all but stopped being made, we look for older pieces that are in excellent shape and have silk piles and fringes that are authentic and have not been replaced or repaired.
Design and workmanship are everything the Hereke rugs are known for and the condition of this semi-antique Hereke is excellent and based on our estimate it is about 70 years old based on the colors, which was popular in Hereke rugs around 1950. 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.
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 video in which I show you real Turkish silk Hereke rugs and the Chinese silk couterparts that are often sold as genuine Turkish rugs. For over 20 years, I have been getting a lot of inquiries about the Hereke rugs and so many have been scammed by the rug dealers in Turkey that I thought I try to show you the difference using actual rugs.
