Genuine Semi-Antique Turkish Hereke Ozipek rug in excellent condition with 10/10 quality and a rare Mihrad design.
This small pure silk Turkish Hereke Ozipek is one of a handful of pieces that we offering and 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 condition of this semi-antique Turkish Hereke Ozipek carpet is excellent and is like new even though we estimate that it is about 50 years old. It is a superb piece with a very fine 10/10 quality, meaning that it has 10 knots per centimeter, which comes out to be about 625 kpsi. The Ozipek workshop in Hereke was one of the premier weavers of fine Hereke rugs and as you can see by how they sell in our website, they are very sought-after by collectors.
This piece here features a very rare pictorial Mihrad design with each window featuring different animals and a floral design in the center window. The Mihrad design is often found in Persian and Turkish silk rugs, but this design with all of the animals is an exceptional piece and one of those pieces that many of my Hereke fans appreciate as well. As is also customary with virtually all genuine Ozipek Hereke rugs, this piece features the signature in the top center of the design. Perfectly suited for hanging on a wall or displaying as a decor rug, this fine Hereke Ozipek is a great reminder of what the past Turkish weaving culture is all about.
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. 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.
