Precise attribution of this rug can be a little elusive.
The central Anatolian towns of Kirsehir and Mudjar are in close proximity.
During the 19th century it is likely that many rugs with similar design and color characteristics were produced throughout the Kirsehir-Mudjar region.
I have labeled this rug Kirsehir based on design, coloration and structural characteristics.
Structurally, the displaced warp construction suggests Kirsehir rather than Mudjar.
In the Kirsehir tradition, the wool is soft and of medium density.
The narrow, multiple borders decorated with rosettes, meandering vines and assorted floral motifs are clearly within the Kirsehir tradition.
The colors are warm and subdued and have developed a genuinely aged patina giving the rug a stately, elegant presence.
All the colors are from natural dye sources.
