Sharkoy Kilim

c. 1900
Turkey
DESCRIPTION:

Woven in the southeast Balkans, most probably Bulgaria or the Thracian region of European Turkey, this Sharkoy kilim combines a traditional Turkish latch hook central medallion with more refined curvilinear drawing. The border is composed of alternating leaves and trees, both drawn in a wispy organic manner, and the leaves break the confinement of the main white frame. Stylized, almost totemic looking trees are drawn in each corner. This piece perfectly reflects its surroundings, with a combination of Near Eastern and European elements and flavor. Collection of Dr. and Mrs. William T. Price
