Lot Essay

The field arrangement of the present lot is said to be a derivative of 16th century ‘Lotto’ rugs and can be seen in a related example in the collection of Betsy Beyer and Edward Beutner (Dennis R. Dodds, Murray L. Eiland, Jr. et al., Oriental Rugs from Atlantic Collections, Philadelphia, 1996, pl.40, p.40). This design is relatively unusual in rugs of this size and is more commonly found in Anatolian yastiks, or cushion covers. Examples which also share similar elems are published by Brian Morehouse (Yastiks Cushion Covers and Storage Bags of Anatolia, Korea, 1996, nos.65 & 66, p.51) and W. Brüggemann & H. Böhmer (Teppiche der Bauern und Nomaden in Anatolien, Hanover, 1980, kat.33 & 34, p.183).
