#7465 Antique Ladik

#7465 Konya Ladik

This Konya Ladik measures 3’6” X 6’3” (109 x 192 cm). This rug appears to me to be 18th century. The prayer motif takes up the top half of the field. It is a well saturated red containing a nicely drawn tree of life arising out of an eight pointed star. The inner field of the stepped prayer motif is lined with carnations. The arch rises into the spandrels which consist of a well saturated seafoam green containing two ewers, one in aubergine and one in yellow, out of which arise serrated tobacco leafs from which dangle stars ala Christmas tree ornaments. The top of the spandrel is decorated with a modified plane leaf motif. The bottom half of the rug is composed of three tulips facing downwards separated by two trees of life. These seem to be growing out of downward facing niches which contain someone’s idea of a Memling gul. Two areas of the field are separated with a crossbar in wheat color containing meandering flower and vine design. The inner minor border carries on the same motif on a brilliant ivory ground. The main border consists of rectangular cartouches in red, yellow, blue, aubergine, white and brown containing rhomboids which further contain eight pointed stars. I have never seen this border before so I cannot put a name on it. The two minor center borders consist of single lazy S’s and meandering vine motif. The rug is woven with the design. This rug has obviously been on somebody’s wall for many years. Somebody loved this rug and greatly respected it. Including me. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance read more

Across the top they become a little more squeezed together and at the bottom they are a little tighter yet. There are all sorts of  cute little things spread throughout the rug.

#7754 Antique Laver Kerman Persian Oriental Rug

This circa 1925 Persian Laver Kerman antique Oriental rug #7754 measures 11’6” X 15’10”. This is a very interesting rug. It has a garden design consisting of six rows of squares. Rows 1, 3 and 5 are filled with a prayer niche motif with cloudbands and floral motifs. Rows 2, 4 and 6 are composed of an arched window motif. Each one of the nine windows is filled with cloudbands and flowers. The entire field is divided into nine sections each containing six separate images such are arched windows and prayer motif. The upper part of the field consists of a triple row of what appear to be tiles in the same motif as that used to separate the three large sections. The images within the nine sections are separated by a column with a Corinthian like capital. The border is very interesting. It is unique in my experience and brings to mind the border of the Pazyrk carpet except here the men on horseback are back to back and pulling something between the two of them which looks like a beehive. The horses are all different. The border has a navy blue ground and there are four pair of reciprocal borders. There is a lot of color in this rug. There is a pale rose, green, blues, tobacco and yellow. The rug has an overall calming effect. One of the interesting aspects of this rug is that the motif in the field is based on the square root of three. There are three major sections each section containing three sections. The smaller sections when combined are equal to nine. In each major section there are three minor sections forming six in each minor section forming twelve in 2/3rds of the sections forming eighteen in all sections. I would be shocked if you read this far, but take my word for it… this very complicated rug is designed in multiples of 3. I’m not sure if anyone else would find this interesting but I thought I’d throw it out there! The rug has complete ends and sides. It is clean and ready to go.
