Exquisite antique Thracian Kilim from the late 19th century in wonderful preserved condition. From a private collection it has had a light fabric backing on for a long period of its life, used predominantly in a bedroom. Woven with gorgeous natural dyes, the deep reds of the border balance beautifully with the varying watery indigo blues in the main field.  The weaver has used variants of blues in an almost wavy pattern which is supposed to represent water.  With gentle pale blues, pinks and ivory wool the balance of colours is perfect.  We can also see a small one way flower in the centre of the kilim, a very pretty decorative piece.

Thracian Kilims are generally of a fine weave, with motifs of stylised leaves, birds sitting on branches and tree of life designs.  Prayer Kilims were also woven, as well as hooked diamond-shape medallions too. They favoured deep reds, blues, greens with whites and little yellow.   They are collectable and fine weavings, with their structure using a slit-weave technique.  Rare to find a late 19th century example in such wonderful original condition.

If you would like to view this antique kilim at home, please do request a home visit.  We love to travel all around the UK and help customers find the perfect antique rug for their home.  It is a free, no obligation service we have offered for over 25 years of business.
