This finely woven, supple kilim in a nearly square format was purchased in
Konya in 1973 and dates to c 1800-50. The eye-dazzler style derives from
interlocking 'fingers' rendered in a variety of harmonious colors,
including orange, red, aubergine purple, yellow, indigo and dark brown.
The small white ornaments are brocaded in cotton. Published, World of
Carpets & Textiles, p. 259.
