Artpiece quality 100+ year old antique Ozipek Hereke rug in incredible condition and a rare large size with a tree-of-life design!!
This rare antique artpiece quality Ozipek Hereke rug is unique in so many ways that it is one of the most remarkable carpets we have ever found amongst Turkish silk rugs.
First of all, this is a genuine antique Ozipek Hereke rug with an 11/11 quality, which makes it one of the finest Hereke rugs we have ever seen in the very old Turkish rugs. this Ozipek dates back to around 1900-1920 during which time it was common to have signatures in the top and bottom of the Ozipek carpets. Also, the colors and design features give us a very accurate idea of when the rug was made and it is a super rare 11/11 quality, which was virtually unheard of during that era of carpet weaving in Turkey.
In addtion to the age and design, the sheer size of this Hereke Ozipek is another outstanding feature of this piece as most Turkish silk rugs like the Hereke and especially the Ozipek pieces tend to be much smaller. This is the first time that we have ever been able to aquire an Ozipek in this size and age and its an absolute eyecandy for anyone who is as passionate about Turkish rugs as we are.
Lastly, the quality surprised us all as most silk Persian rugs as old as this piece tend to be much more brittle and are often times damaged in various places. Other than the fringes, which have thinned out over the decades, there are no damages or repaired areas in this Ozipek. This Hereke Ozipek was obviously displayed as a piece of art and not used as a rug as it is in extremely rare shape.
