Rare Monastir rug 195 x 140cm

Origin  Macedonia
Age Late 19th century
Price £2500
Info Woven in 19th century Macedonia, then part of the Ottoman Empire, this is a rare and rather amazing rug. The powerful, yellow-ground borders contrast strongly with the plain red field, but the overall effect is one of balance. The rug was woven on a narrow loom in two halves and then joined together, hence the line down the middle. Some minor wear, but generally in good pile. Unrestored; just hand-cleaned.
