Additional Information: An excellent example of the work of the semi-nomadic people of the southern Taurus Mountains. Finely woven in a traditional design, this was probably a dowry piece and was stored away after the occasion. Provenance: Personal collection of Saul Barodofsky, a retired expert in Turkish arts and culture. For over thirty years, his import firm Sun Bow Trading Co. provided most of the rugs sold in The Mezzanine Gallery Shop at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition to running Sun Bow Trading from 1977 to 2018, Mr. Barodofsky's professional career included personally selecting rugs and artifacts for major US collections and co-founding an educational site on collectible weavings. Descriptions, ages and origins of rugs are provided by the consignor, with our gratitude for their time and expertise.
