Antique Anatolian Yastik from Central Turkey, late nineteenth century Antique Turkish yastiks or pile-woven pillow covers are sought by collectors because they often preserve the traditions of early Turkish rug weaving, with designs going back to the early Ottoman era. This lovely little example consists only of border patterns arranged as vertical strips on backgrounds alternating between red and blue. The designs are highly stylized vinescrolls of the type found on classical Turkish rugs of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The only other elements are the thin guard stripes with tiny crosses or cruciform rosettes what divide the various border panels. The rich coloration in deep tones of red, terracotta, ivory and blue, along with the lovely quality of the soft, lustrous wool, set the interest of the design off to great effect.
