A Vintage Turkish Kayseri Carpet dating back to the mid-20th century and hand knotted in wool.

Soft colours of cream, peach-pink and sky blue are used to make up and accent the intricate, decorative design.
Turkish Kayseri Rugs are reputed as some of the finest Turkish Rugs available. They originate from in and around the town of Kayseri in central Turkey, with this area known for both high-quality wool and silk rugs. This rug has been woven by highly skilled craftspeople with high-quality wool and, as such, is still very durable and soft underfoot. The carpet is in good overall condition and maintains most of its pile, with some areas of light wear and light staining.
This very large Vintage Turkish Kayseri Carpet is a rare size and is best placed in large entertaining rooms such as dining halls or drawing rooms. Its classic patterns make it suitable for more traditional settings.
