At the heart of this 18th century antique Turkish rug rests a vibrant red medallion, its edges detailed with white stitches to form a pointed guard. Within the bright form of this antique Turkish Kula rug, a symmetrical display of floral elements is arranged and detailed in white, yellow, blue and dark red colors. A cluster of similar blossoms surrounds this spiny, ornate figure, dominated by bright red and white over a reddish black background. Golden vines cradle the top and bottom of this central area, hiding colorful fruits in each corner. Vivid and stylized orchid-like blooms repeat around to form the innermost border of this antique Oriental rug, leading to a set of blue and cream bands. The widest, honey-toned bar is woven with an angular, tribal vine around crimson and blue flowers.


Overall good condition. Pile is low and even with areas of oxidized and gold. One end is partially rewoven and secured. The other end is complete and original and secured. The sides are original and secured. There is no dryness or cracking in the foundation. This rug is clean and floor ready.
