North West Anatolia Feshane Quran Bag Design Silk Rug

Late 19th Century North West Anatolia Feshane Quran Bag Design Silk Rug 

Hereke workshops, which later specialised in the production of ultra-fine silk rugs, initially wove a great variety of designs and formats. This rare piece emulates a Feshane carpet with three eight-pointed star medallions. Like those of Tabriz and other Persian towns, the workshops of Hereke would only have seen illustrations of their historic models. Large-format, printed graphic reproductions only became available after publication of the "Vienna Work", which accompanied the Great Vienna Exhibition, i.e. not before the last decade of the 19th century. – Signs of age and wear, somewhat damaged sides and ends.Size 125 x 185 cm Silk on Silk.
