(High-Collectible) Exhibiting a level of quality and purity of color that is virtually never found, this 200-year-old Turkish Ladik features a striking slender reserve that is framed by an unusually elaborate series of borders. Known by the tulips above the niche, Ladik rugs were prodigiously woven in the 18th century but drastically less so in the 19th. As this incredibly well-preserved piece exemplifies, a traditional deep red and sapphire blue and an engaging palette of secondary hues harmoniously interplay, revealing a glowing patina. The narrowness, emptiness and calm of the warm red reserve create a powerful contrast with this rug’s very active frame. There is an intriguing rhythm in the main border’s geometric, bar shaped motifs, alternating with individually drawn rosettes. Learn About This Rug Type
