Rare piece with delicate natural colors and subtle embroideries
This cicim (embroidered kilim) is a delightful old piece from Anatolia. Only half of the original piece has survived; it was probably converted into
two runners. The weaver combined five or six colors with many ethereal elements to create this lively composition. Some small tears. Wear is consistent with age and use.
