£ 900.00

510 x 330 = 16ft 8 x 10ft 11" 

Turkish Sparta carpet modeled on the two tone camel ground carpets of Nenej near Malayer and Mehriban. In one place there is some old moth damage as indicated in the border and so the carpet has been treated. Very likely a product of the former Greek community in Anatolia. Made either in Greece or  ISparta a city in Western Turkey not to be confused with Greece .

Minor moth damage in one area pf border ( as photo ) and the carpet has been treated. The long fold marks in the carpet are only temporary.  In very robust condition - will withstand heavy use.

circa 1930
