Antique Milas Turkish Carpet, late nineteenth centuryA series of bold serrated medallions repeats rhythmically to produce the field of this impressive Melas. The rich palette of contrasting reds, salmons, yellows, and cocoas nicely accentuates the graphic effect of the design, whose scale is then balanced by the finer detail of the borders. The overall effect is harmonious and decorative, while also constituting an outstanding example of Turkish village weaving.
