Stunning top quality pure silk oriental tapestry/small accent rug, sold individually or as a matching pair, lightly distressed. This fine antique piece was hand-knotted in the 1960s in Turkey and is known as a Hereke.   The rug itself is in mint condition, with a heavily distressed fringe.  The exceptionally high knot count or KPSI (knots per square inch) makes for a truly magnificent piece of handmade artwork made from the finest materials and with superior craftsmanship.  It could transform a small space, draped across a couch, framed on the wall, hung as a tapestry, or of course placed on the floor -- or as a perfect pair for the softest bedside rugs!  The elegant traditional floral design is noteworthy for its exquisite medallion and uniquely vivid and springlike colors, all made from only natural and vegetable dyes.  The reflecting silk seems to change color with the light.  Cornflower blue, powder blue and a rich royal blue, sea green, peach, camel, olive, persimmon, coral, orange and merlot are only some of the incredible colors punctuated by white accents throughout.  Note the signature in Turkish on the rugs, as well as the fine knotted details at the edges. This is truly a piece of art for your floors or your walls, or an incredible gift for that special person.
