Description
Hereke - Carpet - 126 cm - 82 cm
Silk on silk - Turkey - Late 20th century

A hand-knotted Hereke carpet from Turkey

- Dimensions: 126 cm x 82 cm
- Approx. 1.2 million knots (very fine)
-Silk on silk
- Beautiful play of colour in light

The carpet was professionally knotted approx. 4 (?) years ago. I can't say exactly when since it is from an inheritance. Listed as "not cleaned" since I have not found any records on it.

It was bought on location in 1990 in Turkey and imported to Germany. Afterwards it was hung on the wall for years and was later used on the floor in an out of the way spot. Condition: very good, no wear.

Purchase price formerly 10,000 DM (Deutsche Mark). - See last photo

I can deliver a copy of the original receipt if desired.
