Pictorial Tree-of-Life Silk Hereke rug with ~625kpsi, great for hanging!!
This pictorial Hereke rug is another great example of what the lost art of genuine Hereke rugs is all about with a Tree-of-Life design that makes it perfect for hanging on a wall or displaying as a decor item in a formal part of your home or office. With the influx of Chinese made Hereke rugs in Turkey, the local rug weaving culture is all but wiped out and find genuine Turkish Hereke rugs is becoming more and more difficult. Here is a medium sized Hereke carpet with a 10/10 quality that is perfect as a decor item or for hanging as a wallart. While the quality of this piece is everything you would expect from a genuine fine silk Hereke rug, the pictorial tree-of-life design with the birds and plants are very well made and exceptional in every detail. It is an excellent piece and as with most genuine Hereke rugs, there is a signature in the top left corner in the border.
The workmanship is 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 60 years old. The subtle colors and certain features in the columns point to it having been made around 1960. It was obvious from its superb condition that this Hereke rug 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 at a great price and the kind of Persian rug that collectors look for.
