With an exceptional pattern language, this example of the seldom-seen Turkish Damirei Kuli style preserves a lost artistic heritage. Its brilliantly juxtaposed naturally derived color, at a time when most Turkish rugs contained synthetic dyes, illuminates striking graphics. A profoundly harmonious organic creativity radiates from a jewel-shaped medallion almost bursting with cheery botanical motifs. Golden pine cones fill the gap between azure fronds and bright ivory blossoms in the corners of the field. The sonorous depth of an exhilarating color palette infuses this joyful rug with a vivacious spirit. A resonant crimson ground gives way to clouded jade tendrils, coruscating coral blooms, and shimmering sapphire blues. The strikingly brilliant saffron ground of the border elevates the energetic Anatolian blossoms on bold, undulating vinery. Unbelievably, and against all odds, this rare cultural treasure has virtually full pile.
