Amazing Semi-Antique 20/20 Turkish Hereke rug with ~2500 kpsi.
This rare pure silk Turkish Hereke artpiece with ~2500 kpsi and a 20/20 quality is the oldest piece we have been able to find with this rare quality.
The condition of this ultra fine and old Hereke is outstanding and the 20/20 quality refers to the fact that it features an amazing 20 knots per centimeter, which translates to about 4 million knots per square meter or about 2500 kpsi. These type of Hereke rugs are some of the most expensive and rarest of handmade rugs in the world and it is even more special to one that is as old as it is.
This piece was purchased at a private event for a collector who had one of the finest collections of silk Hereke rugs that I have ever seen. The 20/20 quality Hereke rugs were not commonly made until about the 1960's and to find one in this pristine aged and completely untouched condition is virtually unheard of. Based on what we know along with the aging of this rare Hereke, we estimate this rug to be made around 1950 and it is the oldest piece in our super rare collection of finest Hereke rugs. As you can see in the pictures, the patina and aged beauty of this rug shines throughout the rug you can also see that in the turquois blue color.
