Genuine Semi-Antique Turkish Hereke rug in excellent condition with 10/10 quality.
This 4foot pure silk Turkish Hereke is a genuine Turkish piece and NOT a Chinese copy as I explain in the video below where I show Turkish and Chinese Hereke rugs and point out the differences.
The Turkish Hereke rugs like this piece are among the best known silk rugs in the world and this piece is everything you would expect from a genuine semi-antique Hereke with a 10/10 quality. Based on the design and condition, we estimate this Hereke to date back to about 1940. The condition is excellent and it is obviously a very well aged piece and was obviously never stepped on. A classic design of this Hereke also features a mirror copy of the design, meaning that the right and left side are mirror copies of each other. Perfectly suited for hanging on a wall or displaying as a decor rug, this fine Hereke is a great reminder of what the past Turkish weaving culture is all about. Simply a stunning piece and the kind of Persian rug that collectors of rare Turkish Hereke rugs look for. As with all genuine Turkish Hereke rugs, you will see the signature in the top right corner.
