Early 20th century carpet of attractive all over cypress tree design from Sivas in central Anatolia.
This is a sophisticated urban piece with fine knotting, an accomplished, regular but deftly varied, design, executed in soft and subtle colours.
Heavy wear to the field, in places to the base, so there is some unevenness in the ivory colouring. Slight loss to fringes and some fraying on the edges. Fabric tape to each end verso.
