A Demerci Kula rug, Central Anatolia

Catalogue Note

The present lot has a  similar composition to the examples within the St. Louis Art Museum, formerly of the Ballard Collection, Denny. W. & T. Farnham, The Carpet and the Connoisseur, The James F. Ballard Collection of Oriental Rugs, Verona, 2016, pp. 114,  115 & 226, pl. 21. The vibrant colour palette, particularly the yellow ground and border, is unusual for this genre and is more closely shared by the Ballard example p. 226, as are the inner and outer minor borders, although differing with a madder main field.
