This Mudjur prayer rug was handwoven during the third quarter of the 19th century in Turkey.
It is composed of a lively red mihrab with light blue floral spandrels on either side. Cross-panels on top and bottom feature a four-pointed star design. The large tripartite floral border is arranged diagonally, in the same direction. The minor border is composed of tiny boteh, in yellow. The color palette is limited to bright red, light blue, yellow, white, and greenish browns - a typical palette for rugs from this area.
In good condition, with some wear in the center and around the border (pictured). Pile is low, with a soft handle.
