The pattern of swaying, flowering tendrils found here is familiar in the 17th century. A similar motif appears on a child’s kaftan and on a kehma dated respectively to the end of 16th/early 17th century and the mid-17th century (Nevbner Gursu, The Art of Turkish Weaving, Designs through the Ages, Istanbul 1988, cat.88 and 145 p.100 and 128).
