Antique Turkish Malatya Kilim 4'10"×11'6"
This antique Turkish kilim features an unusually intricate design, afforded by its fine weave. Woven towards the end of the 19th century, Kilims from this era were often contructed by groups of weavers working on sections of the carpet individually that was then worked together to form the final product, hence the patchwork appearance. The concentric diamond motif formed by continuous, zig-zagging bands of color is fairly common for Turkish killims of this period, however the complex design of this piece makes it stand out as one of the finer examples of its time.
