Seller's Notes: Hand knotted in wool originating from Turkey circa 1900-1910, this antique floral Gordes rug enjoys the marriage of an unusual array of atypical elements from a bold black border, a distinctive European sensibility in its floral pattern, and the arresting juxtaposition of a more traditional Turkish border with the stylistically diverting field pattern. The rich crimson red background lends a natural depth to the lighter beige, blue, pink, and cream hues in the floral motifs, the variations of which complement the sense of movement in their rows lending a fresh complement to the meandering border’s classic feel; an ideal choice celebrating an idyllic European approach to interpreting Oriental rugs. About the Collection: Antique rugs have been in Josh’s resume since he began in the industry almost 40 years ago when he was already recognized for one of the largest oriental rug collections in the United States. Each piece in the internationally recognized volume was hand picked for rarity, and of course aesthetic and beauty, now complementing one of the widest varieties of Persian rug and Turkish rug collections with the utmost attention to individuality and care. Because of Josh’s position in the wholesale rug industry he’s been responsible for promoting a number of collections throughout history, from breathtaking signature Tabriz, Sultanabad, Kerman Lavar, Agra, and Oushak classics to the more unsung jewels of the luxury industry. Vintage has also been synonymous with who we are since our beginning, particularly for our unparalleled Kilim collection, but with the rise of Mid Century collection the term vintage carpet has become very popular—especially exciting because often times many of the vintage carpets have also been treated, washed, dyed over, sheared, and modified—and has created a very successful category. We’re especially very proud of our vintage Kilims and Turkish rugs curated for our expansive collection of both area rugs and runners alike. Rug & Kilim maintains our own facilities for cleaning and restoration exclusively for carpets we’ve sold to ensure their lasting beauty and care long after a piece leaves our collection.
