This prayer rug was handwoven during the first quarter of the 20th century in central Anatolia.
It features the classic long and narrow latch-hookedMihrab associated with the town of Nigde between Yahyali and Konya in central Anatolia. The main field is composed of the rich orangey-red Mihrab on a silvery ground of faded fuchsine dyes and flanked by two cartouches each with rows of three stylized blossoms. With a main border featuring a soft zigzag meandering around olive-like cintamani symbols on a caramel ground. The main border is framed by two dark brown ground minor borders that contrast well against the reds, greens, pinks, and purples utilized.
In very good condition; worn areas have been professionally restored. The pile is low, with a soft handle.
